Today we decided that we were going to complete an experiment in the snow. This was conducted at the grass area behind Cart Mill where we wanted to find out who could go further in the snow! It was a very serious experiment which involved a group of children, and also a couple of CDOs, taking turns to slide down the snowy slope and see how far they got. We also decided to investigate if we travelled further on our puddle suits or on some black bin bags. The results of the experiment clearly showed the bin bags made us all go faster and the bigger ‘children’ went further!
The children continued with their potion making outside in the garden. They made jelly with some hidden delights! The children also used pumpkins as shape sorters, everyone commented on how the pumpkin felt gooey inside. They enjoyed mixing the different pumpkins to make new shapes and they even added a few spiders to make an extra spooky display!
Today the children decided to explore weight. They gathered resources and used them to create scales on which they could balance and compare their body weight. The children used lots of mathematical language to describe their findings. Matthew found that he was heavier than a ball and that if he stood in the middle the wood stayed balanced.
Other children decided to add some shampoo to the large outdoor sink. Splashing and watching the water and bubbles flow was great fun. Dominic commented; “this is so much fun”
Today some children went on a visit to Rouken Glen Park to observe and catch some insects and pond life.
The children had lots of fun with the big nets and even managed to collect some specimens. Later they had a look at some posters to see if they could match their find to the creatures in the pictures. Great fun!!
The children have been loving the outdoor playroom in the glorious sunshine.We decided to have a picnic in the garden today and had lots of fun counting and catching the bubbles. Happy Friday everyone!
We have had another busy day here making new friends from some other establishments. We have been on the bikes, working hard at the workbench, using lots and lots of water in the garden, eating snack, drawing, and making playdough. We are loving this weather, just a small reminder to bring sun hats and put on suncream.
