Water Play


DSCN5422 1DSCN5419









In the upstairs garden rain water had gathered on the sandpit covers. The covers were too heavy to remove so the children used pots and buckets to empty the water.  Play like this provides opportunities for using the language of maths as children talk about full & empty, heavy and light.  They also have the opportunity to explore the properties of the water and how it changes as it flows in different ways, for example the droplets created when flowing through the colander.
