Exploring the great outdoors

Following children's intrests we decided to experiment building a moat in the sand pit. This involved children using their gross motor skills to dig a large hole in the sand and built on their team working skills. Children had to choose the correct tool they thought was going to work the best. Children got to watch the effect of pouring water into sand and experimented by touching, moulding and stamping into the wet sand, they then realised that when standing on it they started to sink into the sand. To further the children's learning we asked the children if they thought the same would happen if they did it in the mud. We experimented this in the mud focusing on sinking and floating. Miss Broadbent and Mrs Ashworth enjoyed getting very wet and muddy with the children too!smiley
