Last Thursday the children in Base 1 came to school all cosy in their hats, scalfs and gloves because it was frosty outside! After the register we decided to change our plans and go exploring outside as it was the first hard frost of the winter and there was so much to see. We talked about why the ground was white and looked very closely at the frost, we saw tiny cyrstals and sparkles in the sunlight! We also had to be very quiet as we listened to the sound of the grass as we walked across it, we heard crunching and it felt hard. We experimented with touching the frost and found out what happened when we put our hands on it — our hands got cold and the frost disappeared! We learnt what the word melting meant and also used it to describe what had happened to part of the field that was not frosty. It took a fair amount of investigation but we worked out that some of the frost on the field had been melted by the sun.

When we got back inside, after warming up, we looked back at our photos and recounted what we had seen. We then drew pictures about our adventures and some children did some writing to explain what they had learnt.

I hope you enjoy looking at these photos as much as we enjoyed our adventure outside!
