Year 8 have been looking at weather and climate to understand the differences and the importance they have on wider society. The children have been able to share their first-hand experiences of using weather instruments - from seeing air-socks at airfields to using anemometers to assess the speed of the wind before going sailing. These real life experiences have helped bring the topic to life and given meaning to the knowledge. The topic concluded with the children demonstrating their meteorological capabilities by presenting and recording their own weather forecasts. These were not only geographically accurate forecasts but, of course, the children managed to add high levels of humour.
