Lots of the children said they would like to learn more about the wind when we first began discussing our topic theme of “Wild Weather.”
This week gave us the perfect opportunity! On Tuesday the children talked about hurricanes and how the tail end of hurricane Gonzalo was bringing such wild weather to Northampton. On Wednesday we looked at how the Beaufort scale is used to show the speed of the wind. The children then made their own creations to check how strongly the wind was blowing.
They had great fun testing them!
Some creations worked better than others. I wonder why?
