Nursery get a taster of chemistry

Boys and girls in nursery played together with all sorts of soft, squishy, hard, cold materials as they were introduced to science from senior school chemistry teachers, Dr Brogden and Mrs Chanter.

Usually the teachers would come to the nursery to show them all the materials in  person, but this year the children watched a pre-recorded video of them opening the boxes. The children then got to see what objects were in the boxes and had a play and feel of the textures.

It’s safe to say it got very messy when the cornflour and water mix came out when they scraped through the mixture to watch it magically reassemble itself. The slime was also a highlight, mixing the red and blue colour to make a purple goo.
