Freezing fun in Nursery!

Nursery were very excited to find snow and ice in our sensory tray this week. They made snow mountains and snow castles and everyone worked really hard to try and melt the ice and free the toys that were frozen inside it. Their critical thinking came into play whilst trying to figure out what makes the ice melt. Was it the sun?But there is no sun inside the classroom. Light? We switched the lights off and the ice was still melting…

The boys then decided to use the tools to break the ice as they could see that the smaller cubes were melting much faster. By the end they had learnt that the warm temperature melts the ice and turns it into water and water can be turned back into ice if we put it in a very cold place. We can’t wait to see what is going to be in our sensory tray next week!
