Reproduction taught with live hatching chickensPosted: 18th May 2021
What better way to learn about reproduction than to watch chickens hatch live?
That was how students in the Year 8 nurture group at Burnt Mill Academy accessed the key part of the curriculum.
Euphemia Moore, science teacher, said: “As part of the reproduction topic, I decided to take part in Living Eggs, the chick hatching programme.
“This involved having ten fertilised eggs delivered to the school. They hatched after two days and the children named them, fed them and cared for them.
“The aim was to provide a way for the children to access the curriculum for this science topic while learning important life skills along the way.”
The chickens were rehomed by the Living Eggs organisation after their stay with Burnt Mill students.
