In first class we have been doing some drama and science activities around the nursery rhyme favourite ‘Humpty Dumpty’. We discussed lots of things we had previously taken for granted, such as 1)Why did Humpty sit on a wall? 2)Why did he fall? 3)Why couldn’t the King’s Men and King’s Horses put him back together again? Some very interesting walls were designed along with some suggestions: Humpty just wanted to climb like all kids…Humpty wanted to see what was beyond Egg-Kingdom over the wall…Humpty was looking for his Egg-Friends who had all mysteriously vanished…Horses couldn’t mend Humpty because they would probably trample on him or eat him up…horses wouldn’t understand the instructions…horses don’t have hands only hooves…they should have brought in Egg-people who would be experts in mending broken shells!!!
