Today we ventured out in the pouring rain! We began by singing some somgs about the rain.
We then used our senses to find out what we could see, smell, touch, hear and taste. We were lucky that it was raining as we could use this to investigate. When we listened we were able to hear the rain drops and we also heard a lot of traffic. We looked around and noticed many different things in our school grounds. We put our hands out and felt the rain falling on our hands. Lots of us found it quite tickly! We tried to smell things but this was the hardest sense for us to use as there were not any dominant smells. Finally we decided to taste the rain! We all put our heads up and stuck our tongues out. The drops felt quite cold and tasted like water.
After this we had a careful walk around the area as some of us had forgotten our wellies we didn't do any splashing in puddles today. We looked at how the rain was coming down some of the drainpipes and also dripping off different parts of the building. We also went to look at the different trees. The children are very good at spotting the evergreen trees around our school now.
