Weather Assembly

Recommended Posts

Hello

This is the first time I have posted on this forum! I have just found out that in just over a week my Reception class have their class assembly coming up on the weather. I am really struggling to piece the assembly together into something manageable and exciting for the rest of the school to watch. I don't think the children in my class would manage to do a weather forecast so I have considered focusing upon one area of the weather. Next week we are making waterproof coats for our class bear so I could possibly link the assembly to the rain and waterproof clothes.

Any ideas would be appreciated!

Thanks

Vicki

My daughter (aged 7 yrs) did this recently as a class assembly.

 

The children dressed up to reflect different types of weather- ie: wet weather wear, hula skirts and sunglasses, all white for snow, black and yellow for thunder & lightening etc. Each group in turn, danced to music that represented their type of weather. (classical and popular music). The children dressed in hula skirts and sunglasses particularly enjoyed doing a 60's surfer style dance to a bee gee's number. :oxD

Then they read out a poem ( a child per line) about the weather. ( maybe this could be read out by a teacher at Reception age )

 

Maybe another idea is for the children to create a number of large pictures depicting different weather, backed by card, which could be held up whilst a poem is read out ( at the appropriatte time in the poem).

 

Good luck, let us know how it goes.

On this site there are weather sound bites don't know if you could get the cd in time, or if you could use a podcast, but it is an interesting site full of different programmes and sound clips etc.

 

When our pre-schoolers were doing weather a couple of years ago, we made a huge t.v. and they would sit behind the t.v. and deliver their weather forecast using the homemade weather prediction devise - one of those plate weather clocks!! It was fun to see them do it, not right for assembly, but great fun in the class.

 

Good luck with your assembly.
