Wild weather forecasting

Today year 2 and 3 have been experiencing some wild weather. In fact, an entire year’s worth of weather hit the classroom this afternoon! Thankfully, year 2 and 3 were able to use their forecasting skills to describe all the weather we get in the UK during each season.

We looked at a globe and discussed how the Earth was tilted and how this gave us the four seasons and different weather in each season. Then, we watched a professional weather forecaster and saw how she described the weather, using lots of geographical language. The children worked in groups to compile their weather forecasts and create their weather maps, using symbols and diagrams to show the weather across the country.

Each group/season produced a weather forecasting performance, which were wonderful and very informative! Here are some photos of our junior meteorologists in action.
