How lucky are we to have this at OUR school?
We all had such an amazing experience on the farm this afternoon and we got up close to our feathery farm friends. Mr Harris and Ms Howells shared lots of information with us today. We are now full of facts and are ready and excited to start our chicken topic and to welcome some feathery friends of our own! These are just some of the questions that were asked and answered today. What facts can Year One remember?
What do the chickens eat?
How do they lay their eggs?
Where do they sleep?
Does anything eat the chickens?
How do they walk? Can they fly?
What is the red bit on their head?
Where do they go to the toilet?
How do the baby chicks get out of the eggs?
Are they all the same type of chicken?
How big can chickens grow? How long do they live?
Why is the cockerel so loud?
Where do they play?
Are we going to get anymore chickens for our farm? Where do they come from?
Thank you to Mr Harris and Ms Howells for their time today and thank you to the chickens, who were very well behaved! We do have one question left unanswered though. What is the ‘wattle’ (the red flap of skin) hanging from a chicken’s beak used for? Dojo points will be awarded for any correct answer….
