  • Science: Can you make a helmet to protect a hardboiled egg? Cover a hardboiled egg in two layers of material. Do the same with three other eggs but using a different material each time. Which material was the best to protect the egg? Test two materials you think will work well and two that you think won’t be very protective (e.g. bubble wrap, tissue paper, cotton wool, cardboard, carrier bag, newspaper, printer paper, etc.) Drop the eggs from a height of one metre. How will you record the results?

  • After finding out the best material for protecting the egg, children need to find out how good it actually is. Using their best material they should repeat the experiment but dropping the egg from increasing heights (for health and safety reasons, adults will need to do the ‘launching/dropping’). What is the tallest height that the egg can be dropped from before the egg breaks?

R.E. – Pentecost is thought of as the birthday of the church. Why? Lots of people who became Christians that day. Make a card for the birthday of the church. You could decorate it with some of the symbols used in Christianity.

I have made a thermometer, this how I made it.


You will need, a clear straw, some card, scissors, cold water, modelling clay or blue tac, food colouring, pens and a glass bottle.


First pour cold water into the bottle add a few drops of food colouring. Next put the straw and put the clay around the straw so it is air tight. Then blow into the straw until the water rises half way up. After that cut 2 slits into the card then push your straw through. When the water is half way up get the black pen and mark the card this shows room temperature. Put the bottle into something warm the water will slowly rise then mark the card again in red. Finally put your bottle somewhere cold the water will slowly go down then mark it in the blue pen.

Darcey has made soap! She had to work with clear glycerin weighing and measuring out 4 equal parts, adding scents and using a colour chart and pipette before mixing primary colours to achieve the shade she wanted for each layer. Then she had to allow each layer to cool before making another as she wanted to create rainbow soap! She has loved doing it.
