Splendid Skies

Imagine floating high above land and sea on a bed of clouds, silently sweeping by on a billowing breeze. Back down to earth, let’s take a walk outdoors. But what should we wear? Wellington boots? A sun hat? Maybe a warm coat? How do we know what the weather will be like today? Read and write poems and postcards, and, if you don’t like today’s weather report, why not write your own? Make a weather station to find out more about the weather in your area. What weather do you prefer? Sunshine, snow, storms or showers? Get your wellies on and let’s go.

Light and Shadows

Year 1 have been exploring how the Earth moves around the sun and how this changes shadows. Using torches and small world figures, the children traced the changing direction of the shadows.


In our new topic, ‘Splendid Skies’ the children have been reading the book, ‘Clouds’. Today they had lots of fun identifying and creating the different types of clouds using cotton wool.

Rain Art

Year 1 have been exploring different art pieces inspired by the weather. They used bubble wrap and paint to create an impression of the rain. It was a very messy process, but they all had lots of fun!
