Spring Flower Potions

The Ladybirds explored a variety of Spring flowers. 

They used their senses to touch and smell the flowers. 

They used their physical development to pull the flowers apart, using different parts of the flowers to add to various potions. 

Different sized containers were filled with flower petals, leaves and water and weight and capacity was explored as the the children lifted the various filled containers. 

Mathematical language was used as children and team members talked about pots being full and empty. 

Pouring of water was developed as children attempted to pour with minimal spill and realising when to stop to avoid overfill. 



Pestle and mortars were used to crush flowers to release the scent. 

Children showed high levels of engagement and demonstrated the characteristics of effective learning.
