Year 1: Seasonal changes

This list consists of lesson plans, activities and songs and video clips to support the teaching of seasonal changes in Year One. It contains tips on using the resources, suggestions for further use and background subject knowledge. Possible misconceptions are highlighted so that teachers may plan lessons to facilitate correct conceptual understanding. Designed to support the new curriculum programme of study it aims to cover many of the requirements for knowledge and understanding and working scientifically. The statutory requirements are that children are taught to:

·      observe changes across the four seasons

·      observe and describe weather associated with the seasons and how day length varies.
