Youngsters of a Tickenham Primary School has welcomed new arrivals to their classrooms.
Eight baby chicks have hatched at the school, in Clevedon Road.
The school plans to keep the chicks, who were donated by a parent, as they grow into chickens.
Youngsters will eventually collect the hatched eggs and sell them on as pupil-led business enterprise.
The chicks will join the school’s popular dog, Gatsby, in being the pet animals kept on site.
The school, which has 79 pupils on roll and is part of the Clevedon Learning Trust, earned a ‘good’ Ofsted rating in January.
