Cuddling the chicks in Year 5


Today was the day all the children have been waiting for- chick handling time!

The children all showed such maturity as they handled the chicks with such care, respect and affection. For some, it was a little daunting but it was lovely to see the children settling into it and really taking the whole experience in their stride.

All the chicks ended up sound asleep in the children's hands- the sign of a comfortable, happy cuddle! With the chicks leaving on Thursday, there is plenty of time this week for the children to handle the chicks again.

Look at our photos here of the children and the chicks!
