Sink or Swim!

The Portland House Bluebell children have been hard at work making a large river in the sand demonstrating excellent team work.

The children were asked to collect a variety of natural objects from around the garden and then were asked to predict whether the object would sink or float. They found, sticks, leaves, pine cones, metal containers and stones all eager to see if their object would sink or float.

The children thoroughly enjoyed making predictions and testing their ideas and was wonderful to hear them using excellent mathematical language throughout their play.
