Our first blog covers the first three weeks of the new term. Future blogs will be shorter. We are back after the Summer and we can’t believe how the Golden Pheasant has changed. He looks amazing and is courting with the females every morning.

golden pheasant male Year one have had their chicken week they have collected 370 eggs up to Friday lunchtime this week while at the coups they gave our Golden Pheasants over ripe bananas which is a treat for the pheasants. As they were watching there was great excitement when one of the females laid an egg when Caitlin picked the egg up it was still warm. The children carefully took the egg to Mr Jones office and placed it in the incubator for around 22-23 days before hatching.
Wednesday morning year five gathered on the school field to begin harvesting the apples we have lots of different welsh fruit trees including the Bardsey Apple tree. Mrs Bassett our school cook kindly let us use her scales to weigh all the apples altogether there was 56lbs including some bruised ones for our chickens.
In the afternoon six pupils from year three took part in our SNAG group they cook something off our school menu that children may have not tried. Today it was Spanish omelette so we needed 24 eggs from our hens. All the juniors came into the hall to try it and our cooks had lots of positive feedback on the dish.
Eco club helped finish building the Bug hotel went pond dipping and found frogs, newts, dragon fly nymphs and snail eggs. Two big deliveries arrived this week 14 sacks of layers pellets, 2 bags of oyster shell and three very large builders sacks of bark. Our year five and six helpers all worked very hard moving the bark into the coups and also putting the chicken food into the shed.

Erin, Carys and Nell have been finding out how they need to prepare an area in the female Yemen vivarium ready for her to lay her eggs around the 3rd of October. Our last female laid 48 eggs. Sadly our Blue tongue skink is not happy she has not been eating so we are watching her and making sure she is eating her crickets and banana.We collected……… kg of apples and we made rhubarb and apple crumble for all the school (using our own apples and rhubarb) with Mrs Basset the school cook.

On Thursday, 4th september Tracy Cardwell from BBC Radio Wales came to see us and she wanted us to talk about the reptiles and I talked about Mash, our Yemen Chameleon. I told her what we feed him (locusta and crickets) I told her where he is from (Yemen) Lots of us took part in the interview because we have lots of different Reptiles. It was good fun.

Our teachers now have a uniform!!!

Eco Club have woven the willow arches on the school field.
