This topic is largely geographical and we start by looking at the water cycle. The children will learn about what happens to a raindrop and will find out the scientific vocabulary so they can explain the cycle themselves.
Our trip to Selwicks Bay near Flamborough will allow the children to study the coastal geographical features first hand. This will also combine a science investigation into creatures of the sea-shore, in a rock pool activity.
Later on in the topic, the children will learn about parts of a river as it goes from the source to the sea.
