Make a weather report for your area and hear it narrate back.
Clicking the map and weather icons along the bottom of the screen will change both the script and the weather reporter's map, depending on the icons selected. Once all items are included in the script, pressing PLAY will narrate back the Weather Report.
The script can be printed out and the pupils could read from this, in a pretend TV studio. A great chance to get that school video camera out!

This pack can be used year round but is perhaps best suited to a cold, wet or hot snap! The weather is explained in the context of the four seasons. Simply written information texts outline the changes in each season. Pupils could write in different genres: a newspaper article about extreme weather, a cyclical explanation of the year or an informative piece about one particular season.
