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.

The children have been learning that bees are in danger because of the changes in our towns and countryside. It can be hard for bees to find enough flowers so they have been planting sunflowers to help the bees.
