Have a great holiday everyone!

Climate Graphs

In our study about climates we worked together to answer questions about the different climates around the world. We also had to read lots of different climate graphs to find out the answers to questions about rainfall and temperature.

Core Value: Balanced

This month our core value is, 'balanced'. It is important that we have balance in our physical (body), mental (thoughts), emotional (feelings) and spiritual health. But how can we do this? What does balance really mean?

Activities, Projects and Experiments

Here is a little insight into some of the activities, projects and experiments
we have been doing in our study of weather and climate.

We made our own thermometers to look at changes in temperature and we also made our own rain gauges to record the rainfall. Plenty of that now!

We created a water cycle droplet wheel to show the main stages of the water cycle and we also saw a demonstration of the water cycle on a small scale.

We also went out to try and identify the different types of clouds in the sky with our 'cloudnoculars'.

The students in both classes have had lots of fun learning about the weather and climate. We have an even more exciting topic coming next half of term but we're keeping it a secret until then. 😎
