In the cold weather this week Reception classes enjoyed some icy fun. First of all they thought up an ‘ice experiment’. The grown ups helped them to fill lots of containers with just a little bit of water. They put sticks and glitter and leaves in just to find out what would happen. Then they made a ‘please don’t touch ‘ notice and left everything outdoors overnight.
In the morning ; all the water had frozen and the real fun could begin. They touched and observed and played with all the ice they’d made overnight. Here’s a list of the best of the games; ice soup, ice splashing, ice shapes, ice jewelry, ice hunting and my personal favourite – ice pies! (just in time for Christmas!)
