We also had a special visitor, Miss Garrod. Miss Garrod was a pupil at East Harling a long time ago and started out in Cherry class (Otherwise known as Reception) with a teacher called Miss Small ( now known as Mrs Hough!). Miss Garrod is now a reception teacher herself!! 😀
We opened the box and discovered a giant egg!
There was a letter attached to the box. We decided to open it and find out about our important delivery.
The children set to work. We had to think about what the egg needed - to be kept warm and safe- and then collected the things they thought would be good nest materials. They found sticks, wool,leaves, feathers, moss.. Each item was thought about and an explanation as to why it should go into the nest was given. "It's warm"; "it's soft"; "cosy"; "velvety"; "strong"..... Great reasons to be added to the nest.
It was decided that a fence was needed to protect the egg from danger. The children set to work building one.
And then a sign was made to warn people about our important egg.
The Mummy dragon also sent us some pretend baby dragon eggs for us to turn into dragons of our own..
Hope the dragons have been behaving over the holidays!!!
