We are enjoying our investigations. Last week (26/11/20) we made jelly and closely observed the changes that took place. We sequenced the experiment as we went along, and the children were encouraged to apply their knowledge to make sensible predictions. Watching the transparent glass kettle boil up the water proved fascinating - we talked about the steam and the importance of always letting a grown up handle the kettle. The best part of the experiment was tasting our jelly the next day .......mmmmmmmmmmm.
Investigating Ice (3/12/20)
This week the children discovered an 'icescape' complete with arctic animals. They could touch the ice as it gradually melted throughout the day and they enjoyed playing with the animals. Again, carefully observing the changes as the ice changed state from a solid to a liquid provided lots of discussion and delight!
