Kirkhill Primary School

There’s a storm coming…

This week we’ve been finding out lots about the wind and learned some cool facts about hurricanes and tornadoes!

I wonder if your child can answer these questions?

  • What is the wind?
  • What’s the name of a tornado that happens over the sea?
  • What’s the difference between a tornado and a hurricane?
  • Where should we go if tornado was coming our way?
  • What’s the name of the quiet, calm place at the middle of a hurricane?

We’ve been very excited to learn about the weather and created some of our own hurricane artwork (you’ll see by the faces of the artists that some are a bit more fierce than others!).

    1 – The wind is going in a circle. It is air moving.
    2 – A water spout.
    3 – The biggest is a hurricane. The strongest is a tornado. (Orla didn’t remember so have had to check these facts online)
    4 – In a hole that is under your house or a hole that is under your bin.
    5 – The eye.

    Archie’s answers =
    *Wind is warm air that goes up through the clouds and comes back down cold so everyone can breath the oxygen
    *A tornado over the sea is a ‘water spout’
    *A tornado goes round and round and is a thin cone but a hurricane different somehow!
    *We should dig underground and make a little hut if a tornado comes our way.
    *The eye.
