31 Mar Happy Egg Challenge is eggsactly what we need!
A cracking good day today in the Federation! Both school halls were filled with a fabulous display of creative thinking. We challenged our children to decorate eggs to make us smile and laugh and they rose to the occasion. Very well done to everyone that took part and helped to fill the school with happiness. There were some fabulous pandemic themed eggs, rabbits and chicks, Marvel’s Avengers, Harry Potter and eggs dreaming of ice creams and the seaside. Some eggs were illuminated, there were animal eggs and even Donald Trump eggs. Congratulations to the prize winners who made us laugh longest and loudest. Gruffalo winners were Sammy with a hospital full of eggs queuing for their ‘injeggtion’ and lots of funny signs, William’s chicken and egg race and Ottillie’s ‘Eggcited for Easter haircuts’. It was almost too hard to choose a winner in Elmer Class. We laughed a lot at Mostyn’s postcard from the eggs on the nudist beach. Camille’s unicorn eggs were beautiful. Willa’s Loch Negg Monsters linked nicely with our learning about Scotland. Also Highly Commended were Amelie’s ‘Eggsplotion’ and Eddie’s Darth Vader and Yoda.
All the staff very much enjoyed Flora’s ‘Breaking News’ update with Boris Johnson and Chris Whitty! Also in Paddington Class was Ffion’s scene from ‘Matilda’ with moving parts and Blaize’s cheeky staff meeting!
In Wildthings Pippa continued the pandemic trend by depicting a Joe Wicks workout and loo roll hoarding! Alice presented a beautiful collection of rabbits and Faberge eggs. Billie’s egg was looking forward to a hot bath, complete with J-cloth shower curtain. Jacob’s holiday egg and camper van was Highly Commended. Things got more technical in Year 4 and Gryff had created a marvellous hospital scene including a working bedside buzzer for his Covid-egg and visors for the doctor eggs. Louis’ egg was celebrating a negative test result and Charlie’s scene summed up Mrs Slade’s lockdown classroom perfectly! Thank you for all taking part so enthusiastically and with such imagination.
