Experimenting with colours

This week the Nursery children have been focusing on “The Monkey with a bright blue bottom” as part of our colour topic. Today we did an experiment using Skittles and hot water, before starting the experiment Miss Hancox asked the children what shape the skittles were placed in on the plate, then asked each child to identify one of the colours that were on the plate. Lastly, before starting Miss Hancox explained to the children that the water in the jug was very very hot and that only adults were allowed to touch it and that it would hurt the children’s fingers if they touched it to which Romeo replied “Go to hospital”. The children were fascinated by the change in colour of the water.
