Weather

The weather is one of the topics examined in KS2 geography. Children will look at the different types of weather, its causes and how it affects us. They will also take a look at certain phenomena such as rainbows and tornados.

Weather is seasonal atmospheric conditions such as rain, wind, snow, fog etc. and it affects our daily lives. Weather can usually be predicted by the four seasons we experience. The cold of winter causes frost and snow, for example. In April there tends to be more rain, hence the term 'April showers'. In autumn, there is more wind, which helps to blow the leaves off the trees.

This quiz is all about weather - what causes it and how it affects us. How well will you do? Let's find out.
