We have also been reading the story of, ‘Mr Archimedes bath’ in Reception and how his bath kept overflowing with all the animals getting in. The children made their own bath and we tested which animals made it overflow. The children predicted when the bath would overflow. When they dropped each animal in we waited to see if the water came out. It turned out the cow was the heaviest and he kept overflowing the bath when he got in. In the end there was no bath water left and all the children laughed.
