Today we are going to write a weather report. Look at the weather outside. Can you think of words to describe the weather today? Can you write a sentence to describe the weather. Rehearse saying your sentence before writing. Remember to use a capital letter, full stop and spaces between words. Can you add more sentences to add more detail?
