Summer Term 2019
The topic for the Summer Term is “Egg Drop!”.
The children enjoyed watching some eggs hatch and seeing the chicks grow - they were sad when the chicks had to return to the farm.
Dormouse Class carried out an investigation to find out if they could create an egg protector which would keep a real egg safe when they dropped it. They planned what materials they would need and then followed their plans carefully to make their egg protectors.
