Term 5 Whacky Weather



This term we will be learning about instructions, exploring grammar and fiction.

Our core text is:

Wild Weather Soup

Winifred Weathervane takes a well-earned break from making the weather with hilarious consequences!

We will be exploring the weather and writing instructions as part of our weather topic, by exploring the world of Winifred Weathervane. 




Whacky Weather

This term, our topic is ‘Wacky Weather.’ The children will be engaging in a variety of weather based activities.



 From creating weather dances to recording daily observations, the children will build on their knowledge of seasonal and daily weather patterns in the U.K. We will look at understanding the hot and cold areas of the world as well as developing locational knowledge and early geographical skills, including Map skills. We will explore different types of weather in detail and explore how to keep safe in the heat. We will bring our learning together by showing off our skills as weather forecasters. 



We will deepen our understanding of weather patterns, how weather happens and seasonal change through a variety of experiments.  We will investigate how clouds are formed and work scientifically to predict how tornados will lift objects.

We will take our learning outside and explore further in the nature area at Forest School.



The children will be using various materials to design and make their very own weather stations and weather scenes exploring hot and cold colours.
