This week 1 Neverland have been learning about the weather. We discussed the different seasons and how the weather changes. We then listened to a weather report and noticed how there were many ways that the weather in different places could be described.
We learnt we can measure the temperature using a thermometer and discussed what different temperatures felt like and how water freezes at 0 degrees centigrade. We then went outdoors and learnt how to read a simple scale on a thermometer. We noticed that it was colder outside than inside and the temperature outdoors was 9 degrees. We then completed our own class and individual weather charts.
We also looked at Googlemaps and learnt about the countries that make up the United Kingdom and discussed accents in these areas. We guessed where the capital city of London is on a map and labelled our own maps of the United Kingdom. We also looked at where Abbots Langley is in the United Kingdom. We learnt to describe the weather in different places using words like North, South, East and West and Northern England.
As well as discussing the weather we also worked in groups to then plan and perform a weather report to the class using special weather symbols and our own temperature labels.
