Freezing and Melting

In Owl Class, we have been talking about the changes in the weather now that it is winter and how that affects the world around us. The children have been having lots of fun exploring ice and talking about ‘freezing’ and ‘melting’. We froze a rubber glove full of water and talked about how we could make it melt using our hands, the sun and other things to warm us. The children spent a lot of time exploring how they could melt it themselves by pouring warm water on to ice cubes and breaking it up with different tools.
