    1) Pip wasn’t sure whether she’ll get a new brother or
    sister because of the egg, she couldn’t believe that

    an ” ovoid shape”.

    Little pip said he wanted to go with mum because he wanted to go fishing with his mum.

    I think she felt jealous because his mum was having another baby, but his mum told him that he would always be her baby too.


    My egg was 4cm tall and 3cm wide.

    I have noticed that it is hard to measure an egg because it is round and my ruler is not bendy.

    • Super work Hamza. Your right, eggs are definitely not the same size as each other. Can you find and measure two eggs and see if they are the same size?

  6. I like this blog Mr Harwood. I haven’t read this book before so I will be asking some reception children next week what is it about. I hope that reception enjoy What’s in the egg, Little Pip?

  7. What’s in the egg, little pip?


    Mummy thought pip could help dad keep the egg warm as pip had grown up to be responsible. Mum had a lot of confident in pip, but pip thought he was still a little baby.

    Mum reassured pip that she was still her baby and no matter what both mum and dad will love both of them

    My sentence:

    I think mum and dad think pip is old enough to help them. That’s why in the story mum explains to pip that she can help dad keep the egg warm and safe.


    I have measured the egg. here are the measurements of the egg.

    Height: 5cm.
    Width: 3cm.

    I have noticed it very hard to get an accurate measurement as eggs come in different shape and size.
