Our Animal Friends

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.”
