Pupils from Hall School, Wimbledon joined presenter John Craven and the Countryfile team recently, to take part in the OPAL climate survey.

They also demonstrated a number of weather experiments, including creating a tornado and a cloud in a bottle.

See a short clip of how they got on the BBC website.

OPAL was helping promote a new BBC series called The Great British Weather which starts this Wednesday at 7.30pm.
