Science in Nursery

We love science, but we also love awesome sensory play! Snow is so magical that thrills most children from their heads to their toes. But since we didn’t get snow this winter season we decided to make our own. Children enjoyed mixing dry and wet ingredients to make snow . We noticed the snow’s unique characteristics. It is wet (although it can feel dry), makes a crunching sound when you hold it, and can usually be packed into a ball. To link our Arctic and Antarctic learning we enjoyed hiding the animals in the snow.

On Wednesday, we re-purposed some of the branches of a tree that fell down. We had fun painting it and adding sparkly glitter! We explored colour and what happens when we mix colours. Our teachers helped us by place the branches in to a plant pot so that we can decorate our new tree, all year long!
