Rain Gauge Making!

In year 1, we have been learning loads about different types of weather, as part of our Splendid Skies topic.

As part of this learning journey, we have been finding out about different ways people can measure the rain fall, thinking about the reasons why farmers might need to do this.

We then got the chance to make our own rain gauges in school. We had to collaborate to create our rain gauges using plastic bottles, then think very carefully about where on the playground we wanted to place these.

We will use to measure how much rainfall we get over the next few days. We might even collect some snow!
