The Nursery children have become Scientists this week. We discussed which item/objects would be the best to get the toy animals out of the block of ice. Most of the children predicted that the hammer and ball would be the most effective at breaking away the ice.

We then decided to test our theories. The children were shocked that the ball and the hammer didn’t work very well at breaking away the ice. An adult poured warm water of the block of ice and the children were very excited when they saw that the ice was melting. We managed to set the toys free from the ice!
