A Date with a Duck 2022
“Today the ducklings are being held by Year 6 and Year 1. The ducklings have grown so much since we got them. The ducklings also had a swim today in some shallow water. They really enjoyed paddling in the water, and getting very wet! By Eloise, Paige and Sadie (Year 6)
“All of our ducklings are happy and healthy with all of their siblings. They are making their way around the school being held by all the pupils and staff! While they were in Reception’s classroom they did some fun activities with the pupils. They never want to be separate from their siblings even if their having food or drinking. They always rest their heads on each other while they are sleeping.” By Molly, Tamzin and Lola (Year 6)
“Over the weekend, the ducklings went to Mrs Speer’s house. They had a lot of fun and even tried swimming in shallow water! Also since we last saw the ducklings, they have grown a lot.” By Eloise and Paige (year 6)
"Our newest duckling (Doug) has settled nicely into his new home inside the brooder box with his siblings. Starting today our ducklings will be learning in classrooms- year 3 and year 4 are the first classes to play and hold the ducklings. The ducklings are getting bigger and bigger everyday (and definitely noisier!) They are also very active with each other and like to interact with people beside the cage."
By Lola, Sadie and Gia (Year 6)

“Today was a very exciting day because when we came in, the fifth and final duck egg had hatched YAY!!! We named our new duckling Doug (Doug the duck). In the brooder box all of our happy little ducklings are especially cheerful and noisy as our 4th duck has recently joined them in their home. They seem very well rested after spending a lot of time pecking their way out of their eggs.” By Lily T and Lily D (year 6)
We were very excited when we arrived in school today to find 4 ducklings have hatched.
” In the incubator, there is still an egg (and a duck drying from this morning when it hatched!) In the brooder box, there are three very sleepy ducklings. Three ducklings hatched over night, they were moved from the incubator to the brooder box at 7:15 this morning by Miss Kavanagh and Mrs Burtt. “ by Tamzin and Molly (year 6)
Tuesday 26th April
Our duckling eggs have arrived! We have 5 eggs and they are being kept nice and warm in their incubator. We can already start to see cracks on some of the eggs.
