Cian loves a rainy day for splashing in puddles, but today he was fascinated by the water running down the hill.


  • Waterproofs
  • Wellies
  • Rain


Cici enjoyed watching how all of the water had run to the side of the road. I enjoyed all his observations:

“The river is going around a big bend!”

“It’s making a waterfall.”

“Look, it’s in a plait like my bracelet.”

“This one’s like a ‘v’.

“This one is like an elephant’s trunk!”

“This one is going gurgle gurgle.”

“The waterfall is going all across the road here!”

This was definitely a reminder of how to find the beauty in ‘bad weather’.

Understanding the world

ELG 14 – The world:

Children know about similarities and differences in relation to places, objects, materials and living things. They talk about the features of their own immediate environment and how environments might vary from one another.
