Today in Nursery we are looking at how substances can change-e.g water to ice or solid chocolate to runny chocolate, but there are many ways you can investigate this. What happens to the water from your wet washing? What happens to turn bread into toast?

You might like to do some cooking or baking and talk about the changes you see happening- You can help your child by helping them learn about the characteristics of liquids and solids by involving them in melting chocolate or cooking eggs. Have fun investigating and please send us some pictures of your findings!!!


Here are some developmental steps for you to use as guide depending on your child's age in months:
