Weather Tree

Weather Tree

Question time!

What causes the weather to change in this town?

Can you explain how different types of weather are generated?

Who is the figure that lives in the tree?

Who do you think lives in the town?

How are they similar/different to use?

What came first: the town or the tree?

Perfect picture!

Can you draw a picture of your favourite type of weather? You could draw an activity you could do in that type of weather.

Story starter!

Down in the town, streets became abandoned as people scuttled into their houses to escape the sudden downpour. Those left stranded took shelter under their umbrellas, or those without darted to find cover in shop doorways. Many ‘tut-tutted’ as they went, glancing up at the sky and frowning. It did seem to have rained a lot recently!

The weather in this particular town had always been strange. The town’s inhabitants would often debate the current weather over their breakfasts, jokingly asking “wouldn’t it be wonderful if someone could control the weather?” That was, of course, a ridiculous thing to say. No-one could control the weather, could they?!

Can you continue the story of the Weather Tree?

Sentence challenge!

Can you add the commas into the sentence below?

Suddenly the streets became flooded with a river of water but people still carried on with their everyday business.

Sick sentences!

These sentences are ‘sick’ and need help to get better. Can you help? Could you add an adverb?

It started to rain. Water came down from the tree. People went inside.
