Curriculum Area




  • Take pictures of the garden or a park in different weather conditions, wrote worlds or draw symbols to explain the weather and what you might need to wear
  • Find a picture of an animal that lives in different climates - talk about what you can see



  • Nature’s colour palette - Use a thin piece of white card, and stick some double-sided sticky tape on it. Collect as wide a range of natural colours as you can find, sticking tiny bits of different colours to the palette. By looking closely, you will be able to find a surprising amount of colour.
  • Division - using food items or toys share the items equally between the number of people - give 1 each at a time until they have all gone.



  • Moon diary - Draw the Moon each night for a month. Consider whether the Moon looked the same yesterday as it did today? What about two weeks ago?
  • Human sun dial - Standing on the same spot ask a grown up to use the chalk to draw around the shadow you are casting. Come back to the same spot every hour or so and repeat - how has your shadow changed?
  • Look for the Fairtrade logo on food when you are shopping - talk about this meaning that the farmers are paid to grow the food and that children from the farms get to go to school.



  • On different days in different weather conditions talk about what is appropriate to wear, e.g. sunglasses / sun cream / hat / scarves / waterproof coat etc.
