Today, we spent some time with the chicks which have been living in the Reception classes. Our topic this week in PSHE was centered around 'taking care of something' and so we interviewed Mrs Devy and asked lots of questions about having the responsibility of the chicks, such as:
-What do the chicks eat?
-When do they sleep?

-How do they drink water?
-Why do the need saw dust?
We found out lots of information and facts and learnt how to care for chicks and chickens.

We loved wearing our comfy clothes and reading to all our soft toys.
