Windy Welly Wednesday

The nursery and reception children had great fun this week learning all about air and wind. We learned that air is all around us but we can’t feel it unless it moves, so we tried to think of ways to make it move. We listened to the story of the three little pigs where the big bad wolf used his breath to huff and puff and blow the house down. We used our breath to huff and puff and blow paint, to make a lovely blow painting picture. We washed dolls clothes and hung them on the line for the wind to blow them dry. We used squeezy bottles to blow air into the water to see if it would make bubbles. We made blow tubes from cardboard tubes and tissue paper, that we could blow into to see the effect on the coloured paper; very pretty! We made cloud pictures from cotton wool balls and we even ran really fast around the yard to see if we could feel any movement in the air.
