Foundation phase pupils in Cardiff, Caerphilly and Newport have been learning about the chicken lifecycle, chick embryo development and the role of eggs in a healthy diet by incubating their own eggs. After being taught how each group candled their own eggs and have had great success with hatching. They are now learning to care for the chicks as they grow.
The project was organized by FACE members Free Range Learning. They still have spaces for hatching projects in the summer term for schools, groups and care homes in the Cardiff and Vale area – more information here.
