This week our story is Who Sank The Boat? by Pamela Allen.
What does sank mean?
What does float mean?
Why does the boat sink further into the water each time an animal gets in?
Objects behave differently in water; Some things float; Some things sink; If you add enough weight to a floating object, it will sometimes sink.
Have a hunt for some waterproof objects. Do they float or do they sink if you put them in a washing up bowl of water?

At Nursery we would be making bread rolls this week. It can be difficult to get flour and yeast right now but if you can find some, here is the recipe for you to bake together. Hope you have lots of fun kneading the dough. Please put a photo of your baking on Tapestry.
If you're unable to find the ingredients to bake bread, you could make some lovely hot buttered toast together. Using the knife carefully, and spreading the butter into the corners of the bread is great for developing strong fingers.
How high can you count until the toaster goes POP!?
When the toast comes out of the toaster how does it feel?
What happens to the butter when we put it on the hot toast?
What's your favourite toast topping?
Please post your photos on Tapestry.
