Teacher’s Notes

Overview
This is a “Weather” game for use with an upper KS1 class, looking at seasonal and daily weather patterns.

Differentiation is easy within a class by using different sets of question cards. Print sets on different coloured card so that pupils are not aware that some of the questions are different. Weaker readers could be supported by a classroom assistant.

What to do
The game consists of a journey through different ‘stations’ in a classroom or hall. At each station the pupil (or group) must answer a question with 3 possible answers. Choosing the correct answer will lead to the next venue and the final one will take you back to where you started. Pupils do not know the order in which they have to visit the stations and, as it is circular, groups can start at different places.

Incorrect answers result in penalties which can either send pupils back to somewhere they have already visited or describe another task.

At each station pupils collect a piece of interesting information. These can then be used for extension work for the whole class or for the more able pupils.
