An Eggciting Development!

21st May 2020


Whilst our school has been closed to the majority of pupils, we have been working hard to keep the classroom alive for all our girls. Mrs Wilshaw – part of the Reception class team – has been working on an enrichment project to do just that. Over the past weeks, she has been running Zoom sessions with her class to give them an insight into the lifecycle of eggs. 

The girls have been able to see first-hand the care and commitment needed to be a ‘nursery mother’ and how to look after a batch of eggs. They have monitored the development of the eggs in the incubator, and taken part in egg-related activities and investigative work to further enrich their learning. All of the sessions have been supported with study materials and weekly challenges for the girls to complete at home.

Over the last few days, the girls (and Mrs Wilshaw) have shared in the delights of the hatching of seven, highly excitable energetic ducklings, all of whom have names and fantastic personalities of their own too.  Due to the high-level of interest, Incubator Club learning materials have now been shared with other Pre-Prep Classes.  

Mrs Wilshaw, would like to thank Mr John Erlam of Sugar Brook Farm for his help and for his continued support of BPS. 

Egg-sactly Mrs Wilshaw. Well said!
