All the Reception classes welcomed and cared for eggs and baby chickens in Weeks 1 and 2 of this term. The Reception children in Room 18 had some fun and did a Science ‘Eggsperiment.’ They collected the following items in order to conduct the experiment:

3 eggs



heavy books

The children were asked to think about the following inquiry question,  ‘How strong are eggs?’ The investigation required the children to predict first of how many books the three eggs could hold before they cracked. We then conducted the experiment. With most children predicting between 5 and 10 books, it came as a surprise that the eggs could hold an amazing 15 books before they cracked! We concluded that this experiment proved that eggs are very strong.
