Our thoughts after Sarah's visit...

My favourite bit was:

  • Screen Shot 2016-05-22 at 8.08.29 pm.pngWatching the lightning fingers on the movie (Emilee and Siena)
  • Looking at the model of the satellite and touching the weather balloon (Tahu and Max)
  • Screen Shot 2016-05-22 at 8.10.37 pm.pngLearning that the size of a satellite box is about the same as a washing machine (Reagan)
  • Watching how the satellite gets up in space (Freya)
  • Learning about how the clouds come and the different types of clouds (Miracle)
  • Learning about the flat cloud (Gordon)
  • Holding the anemometer - it was really heavy (Harry)
  • Seeing the cumulus clouds and learning the new words for clouds (Lucy)
  • Talking about all the different types of weather (Jemma)

What I learned:

  • Screen Shot 2016-05-22 at 8.21.00 pm.pngA satellite goes into space on a rocket and then it takes photos of the earth so we can see the weather (Leila and Freya)
  • A weather  balloon is a big balloon and it is filled with a special gas (Helium) that makes it float. It flies high into the sky and takes lots of measurements (temperature, photos). It has the measuring thing on the bottom. (Harry, Lucy, Reagan and Max)
  • Screen Shot 2016-05-22 at 7.38.20 pm.pngA weather map has cold fronts with blue triangles and warm fronts with red semi circles on it (Siena)
  • There is an H for High and a L for Low. If it is a high the weather is sunny. If it is a low the weather is rainy and cloudy (Richard, Tahu and Ella)

Thank you Sarah! You were awesome and you taught us a lot!!
