Climate
An arid climate is very warm and dry.

Climate

Climate is one part of geography studied in KS2. Children will look at the different climates, for example arid, polar, temperate or tropical. They will discover where the different climates are found and the weather conditions that are associated with each.

Climate is the different weather conditions of an area over a long period of time. Weather itself is the conditions occurring at present (such as 'it's raining' or 'it's very windy'), whereas climate is what the weather is like over time. In 'wet' climates you would expect rain regularly throughout the year and in dry ones you would expect very little rain.
