The three ducklings have really grown over the weekend. Before we even got to the cage we could hear them chirping away.

Today Mrs Richardson very kindly brought in two lambs from her grandad’s farm. 
The children were able to stroke the lambs, who decided they didn’t like eating grass and that the shed tasted much nicer!

This morning we went into the office to look at the duck eggs which arrived in School yesterday. One of the eggs had a crack and small hole in it. As we watched we could just see a little beak pecking at the shell. We would have liked to have stayed and watch but knew that it would be a while…
