This morning six chicks had hatched from their eggs when we came into school. Two more have hatched during the day. They are very fluffy and are making little cheeping noises. We are keeping them in the incubator overnight to keep warm and then will move them into the 'brooder box' in the morning.

Once the speeches were finished, we voted in our 'Polling Station', putting an X in the box on the ballot paper next to the candidate's name we wanted to vote for. Results will be announced in assembly very soon. We are very proud of all of our candidates for showing such confidence and being so persuasive in their speeches and everyone in Year 2 for being such attentive listeners.
