Key Stage 1
Seasons

Explore outside through nature hunts, playing outside and painting the weather. Discover how all these activities and more meet the standards set in the national curriculum and learn more about the world all around us. We firmly believe learning should be engaging and fun. We have enjoyed putting these hands-on activities together and finding a range of ideas for our children to access learning.

Within this free topic you will find:

  • 9 activity plans, all of which clearly explain how to prepare and carry out each activity.
  • 12 activity sheets to support your child in recording their investigations.

This topic meets aspects within the National Curriculum in England in the following subjects: Art, Geography and Science.
