Seasons And Weather - Day And Night

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Science for children aged 5 and 6 in years 1 and 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with basic facts about the seasons and the weather.

What is the difference between day and night? The Sun shines during the day. We cannot see the Sun at night. So it is dark at night. As well as changing the weather the parts of the year, or seasons, affect the length of days. In winter days are shorter and nights longer, but in summer days are longer and nights shorter. How do the seasons change the length of the days as well as the weather? In science you will have found out about the Sun and about day and night. What are the different parts of the day called? This quiz will help you see just how much you have learned already.
