Friday 7 July
This week, the Nursery children have begun exploring the topic of ‘water’ with a particular focus on boats. On Monday, Bernard came to see then and recapped the bible story of ‘Noah’s Arc’. The children remembered the key elements of the story which meant they were able to order it with ease. Bernard then set them the challenge of creating a boat that could float on the water tray. A huge amount of critical thinking happened as some boats sunk and others floated. We realised that if our boat has any holes in it then it would let in water so we used plasticine to fill the holes. The children also noticed that the material they used affected their boats ability to sink or float.
On Wednesday, the children explored the technique of tie dying as they choose which colour top they would like to create for our boat trip next Friday.
