Weather Data

This computing scheme of work for Key Stage Two gets the children to investigate how to use different forms of technological sensors to record, monitor and present weather information and data. The class can demonstrate how to use charts and graphs to organise data that they have collected about the weather.

Investigate how to use different forms of technological sensors to record, monitor and present weather information and data

Lesson One : Weather Satellites

Explore different ways of using forms of technology to measure and forecast the weather

Lesson Two : Temperature

Practise using sensors to capture temperatures in different locations around the school

Lesson Three : Wind Speed

Investigate how to use electronic devices to measure wind speed in different locations around the school

Lesson Four : Data Logging

Collect, record and analyse different sets of data and information about what is happening in the weather

Lesson Five : Weather Graphs

Practise organising and presenting data that has been collected and stored about the weather

Lesson Six : Data Functions

Identify and record how data about the weather can be used for a range of different functions

  • School Fences
    Calculate the costs of building fences around different shaped perimeters in the school grounds
  • School Garden
    Use geometry and number calculation skills to design and cost a garden area for the school grounds
  • Rectangle Areas
    Use multiplication number calculations to find the areas of different sized rectangle shapes
  • Story Structures
    Identify narrative structures used by authors when telling a story, match definitions of words for homophones and practise extending sentences using commas
