Here is a link to a page that explains the VIPERS in a little more detail if you need a recap.
Today we are looking at a non-fiction text based on what is weather and what are climate zones!

Maths – Perimeter on a grid
Today’s maths session is focusing on perimeter on a grid. Make sure you watch the learning video that explains the session. There is a worksheet and an answer sheet for you to mark your own work.
Geography – Mapping the World’s climate zones!
For the first topic task of surviving planet Earth you are going to map the World’s climate zones.
First of all, you need to know the difference between climate and weather. These are often mixed up in day to day life. Maybe you will be able to teach your parents about the difference between climate and weather by the end of today.
Check out the following videos that explain climate and weather really well. This is to just give you an introduction and a basic understanding.
Topic task – mapping the climate zones on the World map.
The climate of the Earth can be mapped into three zones.
The zones are called:
If you have a school pack, you have a blank world map. We would like you to map the three zones onto your map using a colour key. An example of this is shown below, I have also attached a blank map for you to use. You could free hand draw it, trace it onto a piece of paper or print (if you have the facility to do so at home!)
Extension Y4 – Can you make this work Y4 standard!? Of course you can!
To make your work Y4 standard you will have to upskill the map – this can be done by:
- locating some countries/ continents/ oceans and adding them to your map.
- adding a brief description about the three different zones
- and of course, taking pride and producing a lovely outcome 🙂
