Reading at home Settling In

ChickDear Parents

We will be hatching chicks again this year. This is an amazing opportunity for children to see up close the wonder of nature, but it does come at a price.

The programme cost £300 - this includes incubator, temporary home for chicks, 12 eggs with a guarantee that at least 8 will hatch, food, a 24-hour helpline and the opportunity to re-home the chicks if we can’t find a home for them.

If every family donated £5 we would cover the cost. Can you help us?

We will put a collecting box in the entrance hall for your donations.

ChickPlease feel free to be part of this amazing experience, come in with your child and have a look, follow us on Facebook and hopefully watch our webcam.

Thank you in advance for your support.

The eggs will arrive on the 4th June - so lots of time to start saving.

Summer Term 2018

As usual, this term is always very busy but also really enjoyable with the weather getting warmer, the garden coming into flower and lots of exciting projects.

These are some of the dates for the second half of term - more will be added as we go on.

Why not take a paper plate and see if your child can turn it into a chicken?

Please bring it in to show us.
