OK, everyone, settle down, settle down. Thank you. OK, today we're starting a new unit of work on the weather. Pretty important. So if we could please open up your books. Thanks. And just write that heading down the weather.


So on your table, you'll find a word search on that word search.


I'll spend a bit of time putting it together is everything we're going to be doing in this in this little unit or the next couple of days and the next couple of lessons is in that word search.


So I want to do is give you 20 minutes or so just to go through in silence, please, and complete that word search.


So, yes, Tom, what is it what's a war borealis, aurora borealis, OK, Dad, everybody, aurora borealis.


Does anyone know? Mary, what do you think?


I'm sorry, sir. I don't know of anyone else. Bill, what are you reading? I don't know, sir. Well, it's obviously coming from a pretty low base. And isn't it OK, the aurora borealis.


For those of you don't know me, Bill M. Tom, it's the term used to refer to the Northern Lights fan in the Northern Hemisphere. OK, so if you could all remember that, please. Aurora Borealis, Northern Lights. Off you go. Alright, everybody, that'll do that, that's plenty of time. So I haven't finished yet.


Oh, well, we really must get out of here, but you just finish it off for homework, OK? So we can put that word search away and we'll get stuck into the weather. Now, I've got some notes up on the board there that we need to make sure we've got into our notebooks.


So we did this in science last term, just like last year. Well, that's good, because this stuff's pretty important, so I've got them up on the board, they can everyone see that, OK, if we could start popping down, first thing is that the weather, as it says up there, the definition, it's a state of the atmosphere on over a short period of time.


Now, that state of the atmosphere includes the following, the temperature, how hot or cold the areas.


And that's measured by anybody.


Thermometer. Yep.


Well done. The next one, humidity, the amount of moisture in the air. Obviously, when it's raining, there's a lot of moisture in the air.


But at other times they can be moisture in the air and we don't know it. But we can feel it because we get. What happens to us when there's a lot of moisture in the. We become human. Yeah, how do we know that begins with S. We begin to sweat sweat.


It's very good.


If the air is dry, it takes the sweat away, absorbs all that water off us very quickly.


If it's not if there's a lot of moisture in the air, it doesn't take that sweat away and we sweat and become sweaty. And the last one days, cloud cover. So a day like today is cloud cover pretty universally across the sky, we can say that it's a cloudy day enough for me. Now what I'd like to throw it over to you on the bottom there. There's a question list five ways in which the weather affects their everyday lives.


I went to the beach, my friend said, I know this sounds better than this. All right. We're going to go to L.A.. OK, settle down. OK, let's quickly finish their brainstorming. Let's have a quick look. What have you come up with? Five ways.


The weather affects our everyday lives on. If it's hot, it makes me thirsty. Yeah, yeah, yeah, good way to stay inside. OK, good. What you do in the day.


Personal hygiene companies personal. What do you mean by that? Like deodorant for when it gets really humid or hot and sweaty, it it's like a whole industry just based on the weather.


Well, that wasn't too bad. I suppose so. But I've got a couple that I'll put up on the board. Like I said, you could copy these down and perhaps add them to your four.
