Explore, observe, discuss but will they float?

In Nursery, we love water play.  We’ve been out exploring in puddles today and using them to help mix colours.

Knowledge of the World enables children to explore and investigate their learning environments.  It enables children to communicate, interact and talk about what they want to do.  We value all the children’s ideas and allow them time to explore, investigate and give opinions.

Children’s interests and fascinations lead our play in Nursery.

In this photo, we made an apple boat with a sail and then we went outside to see if they would float or sink in the water trays. We talked about what would happen if our boat floated and what would happen if it sank.  We found other items to test.

Later in the week, we used apples from our apple tree to make apple crumble.  Yum! Yum!
