Geography Weather Chart (prediction and observation) SEN, Reception and Early Years

Geography Weather Chart (prediction and observation) SEN, Reception and Early Years

Use the chart to record the weather for 6 weeks. For lower ability levels- includes pictures of sunshine, clouds, snow, rain, storm, fog, frost, rainbow, and wind to help with understanding. For higher ability levels- space to write the weather they can see and allows them to predict what they think the weather will be next week. Children could also take their own photos of the weather and stick them on the chart. A clip from BBC weather showing the latest weather forecast could be shown during the lesson, and children could be encouraged to look at different areas of the UK or another country to compare the weather in different regions.

Weather chart - UK

I created this chart when curriculum 2014 came into effect to help me cover regularly the weather elements in the Science and Geography section with my KS1 children as well as 'time' within Maths. it is meant to be laminated or covered in sticky-back, clear adhesive so that it can be written on with a whiteboard marker. The months are colour coded to seasons and images are chosen to help the children learn the words and recall what happens over the year. My helpers of the day were responsible for updating the sticky images that were stuck on with sticky backed velcro. The sections with no small words in were written in at the beginning of every month by me. I did need to make three copies of the weather cards in case all three days had the same weather. Sometimes we had a discussion and sometimes the children completed the chart independently in the mornings. In maths, we used it to help organise and learn the days and months. The prediction of weather took a while for them to learn the difference between what they wanted the weather to be like compared to what the weather would probably be like in that season but did improve. It was also helpful to learn that sunny needn't mean warm which is why it has extended sections e.g. weather feeling cards too.

Weather report

I made this resource for my year 1 class but other classes in year 2 and 3 used it too. The children used it as a basis for a weather report after looking at weather images the previous day. Later that day the children filmed each other in front of a map of the UK giving the weather report after watching some weather reports in the local news by using the ideas from the sheet and other ideas of what the weather type was to suggest activities to do that day. It was fun, engaging and a way to extend a daily weatherboard in a real and relevant way.
