A group of school children in Somerset has been learning about flooding - which most of them have first-hand experience of.
Their school is on the Somerset Levels, an area which experienced more than its fair share of flooding last year.
They have been helped with their project by the Met Office.
Children at North Curry Primary School have finished a unique project with the Met Office, looking at why the Somerset Levels flood.
The pupils experience these conditions first-hand in a regular basis, particularly with the last few years of extremely wet weather.
The school won a grant to set up their own weather station, which the children monitor daily.
