10 extremely lucky hens have now joined our BIS community.  They are currently settling in very well to our very own chicken coop (BIScoop).

EARLY YEARS

The children in Early Years will be learning how to CARE for animals and once our hens have settled in and are well trained, the children will take it in turns to visit our hens.  They will check to see that they have water to drink, seed to eat and count how many eggs have been laid.  What a wonderful opportunity for them to gain first-hand experience on CARING for animals.

PRIMARY – Linking with IPC Topics

The hens were introduced to our students during the primary assembly and each class will submit suggestions for potential names for our new hens.  All primary classes now have the opportunity to visit BIScoop to link with many of their IPC topics, helping to bring the classroom outdoors.

Secondary Curriculum Links

Already many of our secondary students and teachers are linking class subjects to our fabulous new learning area and happy free range hens. 

  1. Business Studies – Branding and slogans
  2. Art – Chicken coop decoration
  3. Environmental Science – Comparison between battery and free range farming
  4. Mathematics – Statistics on how many eggs are laid each day and in which nest box
  5. MFL – ‘les poules’ Focused language class on the ethics of different types of chicken farming
  6. History – Transition between agrarian to industrial society
  7. English – Observation and creative writing (short poems)

SELF-SUSTAINING?

Our hens are 12-16 weeks old; already their condition has improved tremendously.  They have a fantastic chicken coop with a covered outdoor run and sheltered sleeping area to roost, with 4 purpose built nest boxes in which to lay their delicious eggs.  They also have a large enclosed area to safely free range and have shown what happy hens they are. They will now happily eat seed from our student’s hands and have even started laying some wonderful free range eggs.  The eggs are in great demand and all donations to purchase the eggs will go towards the upkeep of our beautiful new chickens.
