Seasons And Weather - Length of Day
It's too bright to see stars during the day. We have to wait until night, when the Sun has gone down and it gets dark.

Seasons And Weather - Length of Day

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 seasons and the weather and how day length varies in the different months of the year.

When will it go dark? Not only does the weather change - day length also varies in different seasons. There is more daylight in the summer. The nights are shorter in the summer and the weather warmer. There is less daylight in the winter, and the nights are longer and the weather colder. It can be dark when you go to school, and nearly dark when you come home. The amount of sunlight varies with the seasons. This quiz is all about how day length changes during a year.
