January Egg-Baby Project

We are going to run a January Egg baby project. You will be asked to bring an Egg Baby to school this Thursday, Friday & Monday. You will mind it during school and at home and sit it on your desk in each class. The Egg should have a name as it is your baby! Treat it like part of the family, take lots of pictures of it’s adventures and send them to my email. I will make regular posts on social media of how your charges are getting on. You can make a little cradle or bed for your baby to be carried in. This is just for the craic!!!, Hopefully not! The management and caretakers are a bit dubious about this so please don’t let me down. They think there will be messing going on. I have said that I fully trust you to do this properly so here’s hoping. Obviously the egg cannot be cooked and should be drained. This makes it more fragile. Here’s some inspiration.


Please take the time now to check out the competitions, get your chromebook and enter the competition, fill in the gaisce details, fill in your work experience and sign up for the digital media course. Looking forward to seeing all your baby eggs!
