An explanation of why the weather changes in the winter months. Differences can be measured in the amount of rainfall, the temperature, and the wind speed and direction. Winter is the coldest time of year in the UK because the Sun is very low in the sky and the days are shorter. This means the air and the ground have less time in which to get warm.

Classroom Ideas

Using the clip as a stimulus, the children can complete further research to write an explanation report explaining how we can use measurements of rainfall, wind speed, wind direction and air temperature to show the changes between the four seasons. This report could be accompanied by a glossary explaining the key vocabulary.
