The children welcomed new ducklings to the world after two clutches of eggs hatched in the Butterfly room at Bolton School’s Nursery and in the Nursery Class for Three- and Four-Year Olds. Nursery Class teacher Mrs Browning reports:

“This term, in Nursery Class and Butterflies, we have been learning all about Spring and the new life the season brings. This has led us to observing the life cycles of some animals and insects.

“Bowland Farm, based in Lancashire, provides a ‘Hatching 4 Schools’ program, which offers children and adults an opportunity to interact, care for and learn about chickens and ducks and their life cycles, from incubation to hatching and finally growth. The school programme lasts for two weeks.

“It has been an easy and incredibly rewarding experience for the children in both classes. We have learned so much over the past few weeks and made memories which I am sure will last a lifetime.”
