Our School Chickens
Mrs Parker is responsible for looking after our two school chickens.
Here she explains why she enjoys doing this:
“The chickens are extremely easy to keep.
They enhance the children`s understanding of life cycles, where our food comes from, and most importantly being responsible for looking after a living thing.
They are also fabulous to use as a reward tool for children struggling with behaviour.
The children love feeding the hens and collecting the eggs too. Some even enjoy cleaning them out, once or twice a week!
I feel that having our hens has made a fantastic difference to school and I would highly recommend keeping them to anyone.”
