We have loved learning about the weather and had great fun today learning about Sir Francis Beaufort. He was responsible for inventing a wind scale to help sailors. We were wind detectives and looked for clues in a series of pictures, working out whether it would be safe at sea. Have a look at a few of the pictures and see what you can spot.
We then went outside to the pirate ship and re-enacted how we might stand and move if the wind suddenly became stronger when we were at sea. The children worked hard at using facial and body expressions to show how they would feel.
