Seasonal weather

Today we looked at how weather changes with the season. We noticed (as part of our daily weather reporting) that it was actually a sunny day and that got us thinking about why it doesn’t get as hot in winter as it does in summer, even if the sun shines. We learnt that because the Earth is tilted during our winter the sun has to heat more of the Earth than during our summer so it’s energy has a bigger area to cover. This led us to think about the kind of clothes we need to wear in each season. We then had great fun drawing around each other and designing, and fitting, outfits appropriate for different seasons.
