Session 2- Science
Wonderful Weather - Weather Watching
Go outside and observe the weather, drawing what you see and describing what you hear and feel. Then go back inside to create a seasons collage for the classroom.
i) Observe changes across the four seasons.
ii) Observe and describe weather associated with the seasons and how day length varies.
- Ask simple questions and recognise that they can be answered in different ways.
- Observe closely, using simple equipment.
- Perform simple tests.
- Identify and classify.
- Use their observations and ideas to suggest answers to questions.
- Gather and record data to help answer questions.
- Observe, record and discuss the weather.
- Understand how the observed weather is typical (or not) of the weather for the season.
- If you wanted to, make a collage of the current season, weather and wildlife and compare to other seasons in the year. Do not worry if you do not have the materials for this, just use pencils and paper to draw instead.
- Learn about the weather for the season and consider if the weather the children are expecting is typical.
- Understand more about the different seasons of the year, including the current season.
- Consider the different elements of summer (current season) and represent in a collage/picture. You could do some fruit/vegetable printing at home or use pencils to sketch some fruit/vegetables you have at home.
Investigation - exploring, pattern seeking
Take the temperature outside in the morning and the afternoon. If you do not have a thermometer, use an online website or app from your phone/computer.
Record these observations at home and discuss the changes.
