Haworth Primary School Project

I spent yesterday with the Year 4 class from Haworth Primary School doing a project on the weather.

First we made paper windmills to use outside at the back of the Bronte Parsonage Museum to check the wind. It turned out to be a really cold, grey, fairly nondescript day, but we still managed to get the windmills to fly round in the breeze. We also did some creative writing and we collected rubbings on paper in the graveyard for the afternoon session too.

We spent the afternoon in the classroom making collages based on the weather - cotton wool seemed a very popular material for clouds and snow - but we also used lots of different types of paper, our collected rubbings, card and fabrics.

All of year 4 did great work - there were scenes of snow storms, lightening, sunshine and sun beams, hail, rain, wind blown trees, clouds, a sunset and a fantastic hedgehog. 

A good time was had by all.

  1. It's wonderful to make little ones aware of their surroundings and to notice the weather. Sounds like you had a fun day.
