This afternoon we started learning about The Water Cycle. We read a story called ‘Once Upon a Raindrop’ – it explained all the different uses for water and why it is important. We then began to look at where water comes from.

We learnt about how the sun heats the sea, causing evaporation. It then turns into condensation (clouds) and when the clouds get really heavy, it makes it rain! This then creates puddles and streams, which then leads back to the sea…starting the cycle all over again.

We decided to test this theory! We put some water mixed with blue food colouring into a sealed bag. We then drew on the Water Cycle process and put it outside in the sunlight. It didn’t take long for the condensation to start!
