Reception Homework

This week children are to use items that they have at home to make something which can protect an egg.


You can use boxes, packets, bags, cotton wool, anything that you think will stop an egg from breaking.


Talk to your child about the items that they are using and why they might be good to protect an egg. You will need to bring the Egg Protectors into school. Children will be given the chance to test their Egg Protectors with a real egg to see which ones stop an egg from breaking.

This homework will enable the children to develop their language skills, predict what may happen, be creative and work together with others.

If you have any questions please ask your class teacher.
