Chick news!

Yipeeee exciting news today- One of Mavis' eggs has hatched. Welcome to the world little chick! As you can see it isn't a yellow chick, but yellow and brown. The breed is called a Cream Legbar hen. Lovely addition to our last week of school :-)

Smalley's Summer Show 2017

Well done children, what a super show.

Thank you for all of your hard work and effort.

 

 

'Eggciting' times ahead!

As you may have seen, we are expecting chicks in the last week of term! Mavis currently has a clutch of 7 eggs that she is incubating and doing a very good job with. Today she has been moved into a separate hutch so that she can incubate in peace and get ready for her chicks. 

Incubation and chick development takes 21 days which is amazing that a new life can be made in just 3 weeks. Today is day 10 so we have carefully checked the eggs development. This is called 'candling'. To candle an egg you need to shine a torch at the bottom of the egg in a very dark room. As you can see, by day 10 the egg will show lots of veins and blood vessels- this is called mapping. 

Mavis has done a good job so far and her chicks are developing. The eggs are half way there so keep your fingers crossed for the due date! 

If you have anything you'd like to know about the hens, or Mavis and her eggs just remember you can ask Miss Tulley or Mrs Reckless :-)

Phase 6 prefixes

In Letters and Sounds, phase 6 is all about prefixes!

The children impressed me with how many 'un' words they could remember and think of. Well done children! Can you remember what 'un' and 're' do to a word?

Over the next week, we will be exploring the prefix 'dis' and 'pre'.

Reading for Life!

During Book Week 2017, special assemblies were held with lots of special guests. Our guests included Lucy Truman, who came to speak to the children on Tuesday about her work as an illustrator. Lucy also gave a masterclass to Class 4, where they designed some beautiful book covers. On Wednesday Tess, Oliver and Iris spoke about their favourite books, visiting Heanor library and making bookmarks. On Thursday, we welcomed Mr Huntington, who is the headteacher at Heanor Gate Science College; he came to read his favourite children's book 'The Highway Rat' by Julia Donaldson. Our very own Dr Shelton shared her wonderful book that she had written as part of her studies - she spoke to the children about everyone having the potential to write a book and that everyone has a book inside them  

On Friday, we held a special whole school assembly where each class shared the work they had been doing. 

Thank you to everyone who visited our school and to everyone who shared their work during our assemblies this week.

Book Week - Teacher Swap

As part of our book week in school, we held a teacher swap! Teachers went into other year groups to share their love of reading. This was enjoyed by pupils and staff alike.
