Children at Bright Horizons Englefield Green Nursery and Preschool in Egham, Surrey have been taking part in sinking and floating experiments, as part of the organisation’s Growing Scientists enhancement.
The children used a variety of toys and were tasked to predict whether or not they would sink or float in the water.
“The children thoroughly enjoyed the activity and were fascinated to see which toys floated in the water and which ones didn’t,” said Charlotte Martin, acting deputy nursery manager.
Bright Horizons’ Growing Scientists enhancement aims to help children identify scientific activities that occur in their everyday lives.
