Our Current Topic is 'Why is Water Wet?'

Let’s get wet! Why does water change shape? Why is water wet? Let’s dive right in and find out all about water and its properties.



Help your child prepare for their project: Water is wonderful! Why not freeze a range of small toys and objects in water and then excavate the frozen treasures by melting the ice with salt and water? You could also put different colours of food colouring in cups of water and explore colour mixing using your ‘potions’. Alternatively, create colourful outdoor artwork with chalk and water.


This project runs for the second half of the Summer term. Below are a list of ideas for our project, try one of these or something else project related.


  • Go for a walk and count how many puddles you find 

  • Explore different toys that can float or sink in the bath/sink 

  • Put a container outside and see how much rain you can catch in a week 

  • Sing some songs together – five little speckled frogs, it’s raining it’s pouring, 1,2,3,4,5 


We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum which uses continuous play and exploration to learn. Adults plan both adult led and child initiated activities that enable the children to develop social skills, self confidence and independence in a range of contexts. 


At Ash Grange we encourage our children to get messy and have fun outside in all weathers therefore we ask that your child is dressed in appropriate clothing suitable for the various activities and all weathers.


Please remember in case of accidents and wet play all children need

  • a spare set of clothes and pants which remain at school
  • Wellies
  • No laces on shoes, velcro fastenings are ideal for this age
  • On swimming days we are ask Nursery 2 to wear easy to dress clothes such as jogging bottoms and top.

Tapestry is a communication app for Early Years Families, to share targets, progress and achievements in their Learning Journey. Parents can use this to share achievements at home. Families are provided with a unique login. 

Please contact the school office if you need support.
