Further to our geography work on ‘seasons’, year 1 have been learning about location of hot and cold countries in the world. On Monday, we discussed the difference between ‘weather’ and ‘climate’ . We had some furry visitors in class. Some children chose different animals and we talked about whether they might live in hot or cold countries. We then matched the animals to the climate. On Tuesday, we looked at the globe and talked about the Equator and why countries close to this imaginary line are hotter, whilst countries further away are colder. We used this information to highlight the hot and cold areas of the world with red and blue crayons. Well done year 1!
