Friday 2nd March 2018 - Snow work
Hello Opal Class

I thought it would a good idea today to write some riddles. ( I think you did lots of work on these in Year 2) 

Here are some examples of weather riddles. You can write yours about the snow or something you use / build in the snow or if you want a change you can choose a different type of weather. Riddles can rhyme but they do not have to. See if you can solve these then write your own:

I am something which cannot be seen
I’m measured on the Beaufort scale
I help to keep a kite in the air
And I am what helps ships to sail

This isn’t a difficult riddle
It won’t leave you in a muddle
The answer is what falls from a cloud
And then leaves behind a puddle

You see it rise in the morning
And set when the day is done
It provides us with light and heat
It’s a star that’s called the _ _ _

For Maths today you could do some measuring. 
Please find things to measure (length) in your home. You can draw a chart and make an estimate (A careful guess). You can then measure to see if you are correct and record the answer.

If you don't have a ruler at home you could use a non-standard unit of measure such as your hand, a cube, a piece of pasta, a piece of string.

PSHE :- 

In my assembly I talked about how you are all special. (It's Good To be Me) 
You could write a reminder to someone to tell them why they are special to you.

Have a good day and weekend, stay safe. Hope to see you all on Monday.

Miss Barnett.
