Snow in the spot light

The Reception girls and boys have enjoyed taking the opportunity of the recent weather to investigate snow.

Using magnifying glasses, they looked carefully at the snow and asked themselves; “what colour is snow? How does it feel? What happens when we bring it inside and why?”

The children noticed that it was made up of crystals and were amazed by the fact that it looked white, but when it melted, it turned into clear water again.

So while others see the snow as a bit of an inconvenience, RS see it, through a microscope, as a Science lesson from the sky!
