Humpty Dumpty fell off a wall!

We all know the rhyme about Humpty Dumpty. He was a great big egg who fell off the wall and got cracked.

We wondered if we could find a way to save Humpty from getting cracked. We chose some different things which might help him. We used soft things like cotton wool and feathers. We used small things like rice. We didn't manage to save Humpty every time but when we used the rice Humpty didn't crack!

Ollie had a great idea and wanted to use water to see if that would save Humpty from cracking...and it did!


Later, we made some Humpty sandwiches. We had to butter the bread and cut it ourselves. Then we mashed the egg and mixed it with salad cream to make our filling. We ate our sandwiches together. Humpty tasted delicious!


Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall

Humpty Dumpty had a great fall

All the king's horses and all the king's men

Couldn't put Humpty together again
