Acting out the story
Making bridges for the goats
We decided to find out how flowers take in water. We put some cut flowers in a bottle of water with some blue food colouring and waited to see what would happen. The next day the flowers had started to go blue. Some children thought that someone had painted them! We put the end of a piece of kitchen towel into the blue water and watched to see what would happen. The blue colour started to spread up the paper towel making it blue, just like the flowers.
We dressed up as our favourite book characters
