As part of our Science topic ‘Seasonal Change’, Mrs Gaughan asked us to measure how much rain falls in a week in July. We knew that as July is in Summer there would not be a lot of rain but she asked us to investigate anyway. Using recycled materials such as glass and plastic we created homemade rain collectors. We were even able to talk about why we had chosen certain materials for our constructions. Next, we left our collectors for a full week (checking on them daily). Finally, we measured how much water they had collected. Wow what a lot of rain fell last week! It was definitely more than normally falls in July. We were really surprised!
