At the sand pit the children had the opportunity to construct dams and channel the water into rivers and lakes as well as observing the flow.
Everyone enjoyed getting messy when we made our own DIY slime. There was lots of descriptive language observed “is it a worm?”, “mine is squishy” “It’s a sausage” “Is it sticky rock?”, “it’s very soft”, “its slipping out of my fingers”, “it smells like the bath”, I’m squashing mine”.
When the heavens did open the children pretended to be musicians, playing their instruments whilst singing along to their favourite nursery rhymes and songs in the rain. They splashed in the puddles and watched the rain drops hit the ground.
