The children were still talking about our ‘fun science lesson’ so we thought we should try the ‘skittles’ experiment with them in support of our colour theme this week. We were very impressed with their interest, focus and their patience as they waited for the exciting results, initially watching how to create a skittle rainbow, before having a turn to try independantly. The highlight for the children turned out to be mixing the colours at the end, and finding out what happened to the bottom of the skittles.
We provided the children with individual bowls of cornflour, along with water and food colouring for them to combine, explore and play with freely. The children decided to find out what would happen if they also added soap.
We were very pleased to welcome some of our children back to pre-school this week. The children as always made us very proud as they tried hard to follow unfamiliar guidelines and routines. Our focus this week was the children’s wellbeing as we settled back in, and they were clearly pleased to be back enjoying interaction with each other and the staff team. We are looking forward to continuing our journey next week.
