It's Raining Science in Year 4!

As part of our topic learning, Year 4 have been learning all about the water cycle. The children in 4LB carried out an experiement to show how the water cycle works and what happens.  They filled jars with hot water and placed a plate with ice on top. Then they observed whilst the steam condensed on the jar and eventually it started to 'rain' in their jars.

 

There were many 'oooohs' and 'aaaaahs', it was like being at a firework show!

The children learnt lots of new scientific language, which came in very handy when we visited the river the following day.
