Yesterday the children filled balloons with water and leaves and hung them on the fence to see what would happen overnight. This morning we went out to investigate and found that the balloons were very hard when yesterday they had been soft. Upon opening the balloons the children found that they were full of ice and said that it was because it had been very cold. There was Duplo frozen in the water tray and some small people and animals (not real ones!) frozen in the sensory tubs. The children then went and found ice in all sorts of different places. When we went out this afternoon, the children were surprised to see that the some ice was still there. Someone commented that it wasn’t hot enough for the ice to melt. I wonder what will be icy in the garden tomorrow?
More Science has taken place inside as children have been planting their own beans. Some are beginning to sprout which is very exciting. We will update you with photos as the beans grow.
