The conkers have been added to a tray of water this week and all sorts of exciting things happened. The children built structures with sieves,baskets,big spoons and colanders and poured and filled and separated. They used tongs and got to grips with pipettes. The pumpkins also hit the water and they were washed and scooped and dunked-inside and out. The addition of funnels and bottles changed the learning and the children began making comparisons and helping each other to fill the bigger containers.
The big pumpkin is now a glittering work of art after some small children started to stick on some gems. This caused a great deal of unplanned excitement and numbers have also been added.
