Last term, Year 3 were investigating rivers, to answer the question; If a river is always flowing into the sea, then why doesn’t it run out of water?

They investigated evaporation, and explored the water cycle; they even created their own water cycle in a bottle. By making their very own eco-systems in bottles, they could see for themselves, a mini version of the water cycle. They then use their PowerPoint skills to present to the rest of the class.

Among other activities, we compared the Thames and the Amazon, and created Monet inspired Thames River chalk art.
