This morning the children were very excited to go outside to investigate the snow and ice. We discussed keeping safe and walking, in case there was black ice. Some of the boys asked to sweep the snow away, so we found spades and brooms and left them to it! They took turns and shared, scraped the snow to one place and even put cones around a really icy patch.
Some of the children noticed that the water had turned to ice in the tuff tray, they broke it up and carried it by hand or on their spades to the pile of snow. We added boats to the tuff tray and talked about icebergs!
What a lot of fun, even if the adults feet were frozen!
