YOUNGSTERS received a lesson in responsibility, thanks to a cracking idea from their teachers.

Children in Class Two at St James Infant School in Daventry were given hard-boiled eggs to look after at home for a night, to teach them how difficult it can be to look after something and stop it getting damaged.

The children also got to decorate their eggs as well.

Class Two teacher Claire Murdoch said: “It was a really good activity for the children.

“A lot of them were waking up in the middle of the night worrying if their egg was okay. Some of the eggs were wrapped up in cotton wool and well protected.

“The next morning when they brought them all back into school, some of them were a little bit damaged but the vast majority came back in good condition.”

The eggs for the project came from the Skylark Fields Farm Shop on the edge of Staverton.
