Ellesmere College Pupils Complete Weather Data Project

Weather Project

Following a three week collection of weather data Year 6 pupils have recently completed their project to record weather variances around the School campus.

Setting out rain gauges, thermometers and anemometers to record wind speed, the pupils recorded local weather conditions in various parts of the College 144-acre site.  Head of Geography, Helen Scarisbrick, commented, 'Working in teams to collect primary data is a valuable geographical skill which could all be performed on the School's site.'

The School is  currently completing the installation of its own weather station which will give future pupils the opportunity to compare climate data over a number of years .
