At Coopers Edge School all of our class blogs are open to share with the world!

The Hatchlings have been keeping an eye on the eggs in the incubator in Reception. Today we were very eggcited to find that 2 of the eggs had hatched and there were tiny chicks for us to see! This afternoon, an eggstra egg had hatched so that makes 3 so far…with more to come, including a duck egg. Eggstraordinary!!

Since we have been finding lots of snails in the garden recently, the children have become interested in observing them closely: we have set up a snail observation area where the children have been using magnifying glasses and drawing spiral snail shells. We have also looked up information about snails on the Internet and used this to make some observational drawings of them, as well as creating Matisse inspired snail collages. We have even had our own snail races, and the snails were surprisingly speedy!

Well done to all the Hatchlings who have received a golden leaf, wow voucher or special friendship certificate this week. We are so proud of your achievements – keep up the good work!

Some of the Hatchlings have been busy making musical instruments and have even formed their own rock band! They have been rehearsing their songs to put on a performance for the rest of the children. We definitely have some superstars in the making!!

Watering the garden

The lovely warm weather has meant that we have had to water the plants in our garden a lot to make sure they keep growing. The Hatchlings love to visit the allotment garden, not only to do the watering but also to dig, weed, play hide and seek and look for snails and bugs. We have also been searching for materials to make a big bird’s nest and we made some clay eggs to go in it. We hope that they are going to hatch!

Fun in the MUGA

This afternoon the Hatchlings were enjoying the sunshine and playing with balls and hoops in the MUGA. They are learning to throw, catch and kick the balls and roll and chase the hoops. Great fun!

A special treat

We were lucky enough this morning to join the rest of the school to watch a concert by the Watoto Children’s Choir. The choir are visiting from Uganda and all of the children who performed for us are orphans who travel the world as ambassadors for the Watoto mission,  which supports orphaned and vulnerable children in Africa. Their singing and dancing was spectacular and they certainly spread a feeling of joy and hope to all of the audience.
