This term Year 1 have been learning about extreme weather around the world. We have followed the travels of Sunny the Meerkat from ‘Meerkat Mail’ by Emily Gravett. Sunny visited the Kalahari Desert and the Liberian Rain Forest, inspired by this the children wrote a postcard home explaining about the differing weather. We have been learning about hot and humid climates and what happens in a monsoon.
We also looked at why some countries have hot climates and cold climates and showed our findings with colours on a world map.
