Duckling Diary 2020-2021

Learning with a Splash! 


The duckling's first swim was a big deal and we were so excited to broadcast it live, and share it with our brothers and sisters, across the school. It was amazing how quickly they took to the water!


Today we have been thinking about the word 'challenge' and took on the challenge of building a ramp for the ducks to get in and out of their new pool. Ms Whittlestone's paper staircase didn't work but once we tested the materials we had much better ideas. Check out our water park! 

The Duck Update! 


We have really been shaking some tail feathers in EYFS, so sorry for the lack of updates! 


Last Thursday some cracks started to appear and in the space of about an hour we welcomed our first duck to the class. Can you work out which duck it was? Some of the names you all came up with really quack me up! 

Some Eggciting and Eggcellent News! 


We have some new arrivals here in Early Years! 5 duck eggs have been delivered and we are eagerly awaiting the arrival of 5 ducklings. We are expecting 4 yellow ducks and 1 mystery duck, Moon Class are convinced we will be hatching a rainbow duck! 


We have been watching closely at the cracks appearing in the shells as the ducklings get ready to hatch! 


We have been researching all about nests and finding out why birds need to make nests. We even had a go at making nests ourselves! 

Thursday 22nd April 2021


Surprise! 4 ducklings have hatched! We have 3 fluffy, yellow ducklings and the mystery duck turned out to be brown.

We are super excited that we have some new friends in our classroom. We are ensuring we are gentle with the ducklings and using a quiet voice around them. We can't wait to teach them to swim next week!
