Sharing our stories with Year 1

The Water Cycle


The children explored how we have water on our planet.


  1. Did you Know that 71% of the Earth's surface is covered in water and that the oceans hold 96.5% of all the Earth's water.
  2. Did you know that an adult human's body has 50-65% water inside them. 
  3. Where does all the water come from I here you cry?
  4. A couple of the children will explain.


Now you have some idea about where water came from, how do we keep it on Earth?


Listen to the story that______ created, with illustrations too!
