The children in Reception have really been enjoying the story of ‘Supertato Veggies Assemble’ by Sue Hendra.
This week the Evil Pea, from the story had come into the classroom and trapped the carrots in ice. The challenge was to free the carrots from the ice as quickly as they could. The children talked about how cold it was, were the Evil Pea might have made the ice with one child saying “he could have flown to the Arctic to get it”. They discussed that they needed to heat the ice up and turn it back into water.
When they had freed the carrots they carried on investigating with the lumps of ice and some made ice carrot soup.
