Water in bottles, water in cans Water in kettles, water in pans.
It's always the shape of whatever it's in. Saucepan or kettle, bottle or tin.
That is Play School's poem this week. Today the saucepan lid makes a car wheel, and Carole does the washing-up. There's more washing on Tuesday but this time it's dirty clothes. On Thursday, some kitchen pictures are made, and on Friday the science experiment is about water.

These four men intend making a 3,800-mile trek across the constantly shifting and breaking ice of the Arctic Ocean to the Norwegian island of Spitzbergen. It will take them one and a half years.
Filmed by a BBC crew who lived and worked with the expedition, tonight's programme tells the story of the tense and anxious weeks leading up to their departure and of their first days on the ice. Now, nine weeks out, what are their chances? In the studio to give their own personal views are two Polar explorers, Colonel Andrew Croft and Sir
