Vegetable investigation. A mix of vegetables, including lots of unfamiliar ones for the children to explore, encouraging them to use all their senses, and lots of language skills. Relevant books are available encouraging them to enjoy an increasing range of books and know that they carry information as well as stories.

Where do seeds come from investigation.... This started out as a tray with a whole butternut squash, tomatoes, peppers, cucumber, melon and pomegranate.... The children then cut each thing open to discover and collect the seeds from inside them....(the seeds have now been put to dry so they can be planted) once the seed investigation was complete the children had great fun just cutting!!

2 paper cups, some marbles and a basket - A simple but fun way to introduce the idea of addition to children.
