Some activities to try.
- Make a weather chart to record the changes in the weather.
- Sort clothing into groups for different seasons.
- Draw a picture of themselves in summer and winter.
- Look at the local area on google maps – what buildings can they identify?
- Draw a simple map of an imaginary place or a pirate map.
- Draw a picture of a familiar place.
