The ice that formed in our outdoor area at the start of the week caused great excitement amongst Robins. They collected lots of interesting shaped pieces from the bottom of buckets and left them in the classroom to see how quickly they would melt. Mrs Netting brought in a giant ice brick she had made later in the week so that we could further investigate the thawing process. The children were surprised to find a robin hidden inside (not a real one!). The story of Sleeping Beauty led us to make fairy wands from pipe cleaners and beads as well as fruit kebab wands for casting magic spells. We also used fruit to help us practise addition sums and have enjoyed all the left overs as extra snacks!
