At Frampton Cottrell C of E Primary School in South Gloucester, Claire Taylor is teaching the weather to her Year 4 class.
This programme shows how Claire uses the weather to access other subject areas and to deepen her pupils' understanding of geography.
In an English lesson, Claire uses the pupils' knowledge of different weather conditions to write poetry. In the dance lesson, Claire's students create their own weather dances. The next day, in maths, the class use weather data they have been collecting to learn about line graphs.
Finally, the class presents their learning to a real audience by performing a weather forecast.
This programme provides a chance to see a well-planned series of lessons in action, aiming to ensure a broad and balanced curriculum that enriches learning.
