Water play

Nursery has taken the opportunity to make the most of the sunshine and warm weather. Using water, we discovered and experimented with the mathematical concept of capacity. We set up water ramps which directed the flow of water in different directions. We also provided water trays, tubs, bottles, scoops and jugs to measure out the amount of water required to make bottles and tubs full, half full and then empty. The children also did some mark making using buckets of water and large paint brushes. The children made some exciting observations and positive comments.
