Welcome to the Worm Hotel

Tonight at Eco-club we made our very own 5 star worm hotels, we thought about where we usually find worms and then tried to recreate that in a jar.

The Warriors used layers of sand and soil to fill their jars and then we went worm collecting. It took us a while but eventually we found a lovely damp place underneath a planting table where there were lots of worms.

We popped the worms into our hotels and then topped them off with food scraps and old tea leaves. Yum yum, a tasty treat for our little friends.

Over the next few weeks we will keep an eye on our worm hotels to see what happens. What do you think we will find?

Bye bye Crumble!! 🐤

We bid a fond farewell to our little Crumble today. He’s taken up residence on Ladybridge High School’s farm, he looked very happy in his new home when I said goodbye. If you visit the farm ask Steve if you can say hello to him. Goodbye Crumble, enjoy your new home! image image

Happy Hatchday!!

At last they are here! Yesterday 2 of our chicks had hatched and this morning when we went back to check there was another fluffy bundle!

Just before we left we had one last check and were lucky enough to see another chick hatch while we were watching! It was very exciting.

Here are some of the pictures we have taken, they all need names now so get your thinking caps on.

Did did you know you can hear the chicks cheeping inside the eggs before they hatch?

Hatching out of an egg is very hard work for a chick, it can take 24 hours.

I’ll keep you posted with hatch news!
