Chicks Arrive in School

This week saw the exciting arrival of many chicks from our incubators, a wonderful result from ten fertilised eggs. The chicks are now happily roaming around their brooder in the reception area of school. Thank you to Mr Penalver, the school caretaker, for setting up the brooder for our chicks. Thank you also to Mrs Scarisbrick who has cared for our chicks wonderfully and has supported our children in learning how to care for such young animals. Thank you to the Eastham Family for supplying hay and Mrs Rasburn for volunteering to care for our chicks over half term. Once the chicks are strong enough we will move them to their new home in our garden area. We are very excited to have the opportunity to keep chickens in school and would welcome any help and support with their care and offers of food and sawdust for their home! Please see Mrs Scarisbrick in the school office.

Toast and Milk Letters

Toast and milk letters have been sent home this week. Please ensure that all orders are returned to school by Wednesday 25th May. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that children will receive toast and milk on the first day of term if orders are placed after this date.
