Where does rain come from?
As part of our topic on water, this week we have been learning all about the water cycle and where rain comes from. We have been reading a non-fiction text called 'Splish, Splash, Splosh' by Mick Manning and Brita Granstrom, which tells us all about how rain is made along with the many uses of water and how it gets to our homes.
We have also learnt that all living things need water to survive, and so we have decided to challenge the children to grow a plant and look after it all by themselves, by making sure that it gets some sunshine and is regularly watered. We would like to thank one of the children's grandfathers for very kindly donating some giant sunflower seeds.
We are looking forward to taking care of and watching these seeds grow. We can't wait to see how tall our sunflowers get.
