There was 'eggcitement' for pupils at Holme Grange in Wokingham when they arrived to discover a giant egg had appeared on the school lawn!

The area was cordoned off and investigated by the children who were busy looking for clues. They silently searched the site, finding footprints, an orange and some feathers.

PC Kate Cooper & PCSO Vicky Williams from Wokingham neighbourhood policing team arrived, interrupting school assembly with their flashing blue lights and sirens as they proceeded to the scene. The officers recorded evidence from pupils, before reporting their findings back at the station.

Readers won’t be surprised to learn that Head Teacher Mrs Claire Robinson was the first to discover the egg. Sightings of ‘the mother’ in the bushes by year 2 pupils, and reports of a long white tail, soon spread around the school.

The children continue to record evidence in a bid to establish the nature of the mysterious egg.

They have been busy writing newspaper articles on the egg, together with drawings of what they suspect may be inside. It has been concluded that the mother must be very shy and comes to sit on the egg when all the children have gone home. They would like to thank the Wokingham neighbourhood policing team for their ‘eggcellent’ support and look forward to solving the mystery!
