In a very clear (and shameless) attempt to link their learning to Easter, Year 7s were encouraged, over the holidays, to create a historical scene using eggs as the centrepiece. Some ‘egg-stremely’(!) creative ideas were poached(!) from here and there, and some ‘egg-scellent’(!) originality was seen as well. Ideas ranged from Albert Eggstein through to Henry VIII’s half-dozen wives, and of course a chocolate-based prize was awarded to the best in each class. In all seriousness, anything that helps students see that learning can take place in many different ways is always a good thing. My thanks go to all of the students who took part.
