Aleena's Egg



Last week Aleena found an egg on our school field. 


How do you think it got there?


What might be inside?


How could we find out?


How could we take care of the egg until it is ready to hatch?


Can you make a 'nest' to keep Aleena's egg safe and warm?


You could scrunch up some newspaper or roll up a towel for the egg or use a real egg!


Can you draw or paint what might be inside the egg?


Write a sentence on your picture saying what you think it is.


Start your sentence with "It is a ... " .


Watch the video below of me when your child is ready to write their sentence. We want your child to try and write as independently as they can. The top video is for you to watch and the bottom one for your child. 


Have a lovely day,


Mrs Rogers
