Year 1 children were treated to a visit from Mr Bell who is a meteorologist and a weather forecaster on the television as part of their Weather Experts topic.
Mr Bell showed the children how he presents the local weather and what the different images on the screen mean. He talked about how they show rain, the temperature and the wind speed.
Mr Bell then talked to the children about the different instruments that are used to measure the weather. We learnt that a rain gauge measures the amount of rainfall, a thermometer measures the temperature and an anemometer measure the wind speed.
