On Monday we received a letter from Farmer Jen inviting us to take part in 'The Egg Drop Challenge'. We needed to design, create and then test containers that could keep an egg safe when dropped from around 2 metres.

On Monday we thought about the materials and designed our containers. On Tuesday, we made them and today was the day we got to test them!! It was all very 'egg-citing'!

"I had a prediction my egg wouldn't break... and it didn't!" - Joe

"I was so happy because our egg didn't break." - Jayana

"I liked hearing the crack of the egg breaking - it was satisfying" - Omodolapo

The children really enjoyed the challenge and will be evaluating their designs on Friday. Tell someone at home, what worked well? What might you do different next time?
