The arrival of the freezing weather caused much excitement at Rachel Keeling. The children and staff wrapped up warm and ventured into the garden as they do every day. Although we were not blessed with lots of snow, we made the most of the ice and snowy patches left here. Children explored the ice, gathering it and packing it into parcels. It supported lots of talk and children then used pipettes to add food colouring and see what happened. The results were some beautiful 'crystals' (photographs of which adorn Maria's office now!) Children observed the effect of the dye on the ice and left them overnight. The following morning they had all disappeared, just like the snowmen in the park!
