The Week Ahead in Challenger

The Seasons and the Weather

Last week we took our inspiration from the ever-changing English weather and children wrote some wonderful acrostic and haiku poetry. We'll be writing final neat copies this week and also looking at traditional nursery rhymes associated with the weather.

We have begun to keep records of temperature and rainfall and we'll continue to monitor this for the rest of the year as we consider how the weather changes according to the season.
