Poems and Songs

Poems and songs about the weather for children and schools

There are lots of songs and poems about the weather. Why not practise singing the ones here on this page? Or you could make up your very own song using your favourite weather words!!
TIPS: Tapping your fingers on a table sounds like raindrops, stamping your feet sounds like thunder, blowing sounds like the howling wind and you could even make shivery noises for the cold!!
