It’s officially spring at Brookside Primary School with the arrival of nine chicks.

The spring half term has been very busy and interesting especially for the reception class children who were lucky enough to see two of the chicks hatching.

They have since been watching them grow and change over the past couple of weeks, have enjoyed caring for them and have been learning how to look after them.

The chicks have now left school and been re-homed, but have been back to visit the children a couple of times so they can see how they have changed. It was a fantastic experience for the children and they enjoyed completing chick-themed activities.
