Growing up fast!

Playground designs DT
This term we looked at lots of parks and talked about what we enjoy at the park. We decided to design create a piece of playground equipment to make year 1/2 a small world park. We discussed what materials we could use and what properties the materials had to make building with them a good idea. Here are some of the fantastic creations

5 baby chicks!!
Today has been very exciting! Our Blue tit eggs have started to hatch . So far we have five baby chicks. Mummy and Daddy have been very attentive and have been feeding them all day. We hope to see more tomorrow.
A cracking good day
We now have 8 eggs!!. After doing a little research, it turns out The Blue tit lays once a day and she has probably been hiding her eggs for some time. She decided to let us share her joy. We have also found out that none of the eggs will hatch until the Blue tit had completed laying all her eggs.
Egg-sactly 8 eggs
