Unfortunately when the ducklings hatched one didn’t survive and past away.
Miss Irwin explained to us why it had died. When it was born it had some of its tummy on the outside. It’s body wasn’t strong enough to survive.
Some of us wanted to look at the duckling. Miss Irwin said we could as long as we didn’t touch it and we thought about it carefully. As a class we discussed and shared our experiences of our pets that had died. We talked about heaven and God and what we would like to do with the duckling. We gave it a name and wanted to send it to heaven. So we decided to bury it.
We wanted to write a prayer, dig a grave and pick some flowers. So that’s what we did.
