What is the weather today?
In this week's story book 'Lost and Found', when the boy and penguin were travelling to the South Pole, they saw 'good weather and bad'. In Wales we have lots of different weather! What would you say was good weather? What would you say was bad weather?
What is the weather like today? What was it like yesterday? What do you think the weather will be like tomorrow?
How do we know what the weather is going to be like?
Talk to your child about how we can check the weather on the internet or by watching a weather forecast.

Weather Purple Mash 2Do Activity
It's time to log into your Purple Mash account and access your 'Weather' 2Do. Can you use the paint tools and templates to design your own set of weather symbols?
There are lots of different colours to use and remember you can change the size of the brush you are drawing with using the slider in the bottom left corner. When you have finished your weather symbols, drag across the weather words to label the different symbols you have designed. In the left hand corner of your 2Do page you will see 'Abc'. Talk to your grown up about what your favourite type of weather is and ask them to type your sentence for you here. Happy weather work!
