Egg-citing Activities

With Easter coming up, that can only mean one thing… an egg-citing activity! Python class have been looking at creating, making and then evaluating different weekly projects in their Design Technology lessons.

We conducted the famous ‘egg drop’ experiment where KS2 pupils were tasked with saving their egg from breaking when being dropped from 4m. All pupils were given the same variety of materials and individually created their very own unique parachutes for their eggs.  We drafted in Mr Walsh as the official judge and all students showed tremendous effort and creativity. We are pleased to report that two out of the six eggs survived the drop.

Students develop very high levels of positive behaviour and feel extremely safe. They are very considerate, very respectful and caring of others and highly positive about learning.
