Water Resource Collection 4-5yrs
This ready-made water resource collection enables children to develop a deep understanding of: Maths – sets of graded containers, scoops, funnels, jugs and buckets for exploring volume and capacity, arranged to highlight size, order and promote comparison. Science – jugs and funnels, whisks, colanders and everyday objects with holes, tubes and pipes, as well as a water wheel for exploring forces, flow, speed and direction....Read More >
This ready-made water resource collection enables children to develop a deep understanding of: Maths – sets of graded containers, scoops, funnels, jugs and buckets for exploring volume and capacity, arranged to highlight size, order and promote comparison. Science – jugs and funnels, whisks, colanders and everyday objects with holes, tubes and pipes, as well as a water wheel for exploring forces, flow, speed and direction.
Our water resource collection has been carefully chosen to build on experiences in the EYFS and will engage children in a wealth of imaginative, investigative and mathematical thinking. Pipes, tubes and measuring containers promote investigation and problem solving – and a good selection of small world resources further inspire imaginative play and language development including a selection of boats, helicopters, people and sea creatures, along with natural materials for storytelling. To enrich this learning for older children, use a set of graduated containers with standard measures for investigating measuring and volume.
Our Water Resource Collection includes the following:
- Set of Sea Creatures – Set includes an Octopus, Bottlenose Dolphin, Killer Whale, Walrus, Sea Lion, Turtle, Great White Shark – In the deep oceans of the world, there are many different species of fish. Children can engage in story telling as they investigate water play.
