It inspired us to read more.

Eggstremely Eggciting


As you know Carr Junior has chickens, and lately they have been laying eggs this means we might be able to have omelets in lunch for hot-dinners.


Mrs Stephenson is delighted to tell the school the chickens have started to lay EGGS! One of the eggs was found by Katie Innes and Katie Pearson. Katie I says “The egg was sort of warm and it was also pale”

Mrs Stephenson was very happy and showed the staffroom, she says “The chickens don’t tend to lay in colder weather”.

Year 4 took a trip to Murton Park on Wednesday 1st March and Thursday 2nd March to learn how the Vikings lived and how it felt to be a Viking.


While there we did some gardening, made some pottery and we also fought against a Saxon invader. We had a banquet for lunch we had a lot of fun and enjoyed being a viking.


As a result of our trip year 4 got their Viking topic off to a vicious start!
