Friday 2nd March
Well, what can we say, our 4th snow day!!
We hope you have had lots of fun and are not too bored.

There are lots of activities below for you to complete if you haven't yet, but more importantly we want you to have fun, stay safe and be good!

We look forward to seeing you on Monday, with lots of snow news to tell us!!


Thursday 1st March 
Snow day activities
Happy World Book Day everyone!
Even a snow day can not stop us joining in the book day fun!
As you are most probably still in you pyjamas, why don't you grab your favourite book and share it with your grown up or sibling.  Talk about your favourite character and favourite part of the story.  Why do you like that part the best?  Can you re tell the story using just actions? 
We have attached a design your own book token.  Bring it into school so we can all look at your fantastic work.  If you cannot print it, don't worry, you can draw your own version.  It will be just as brilliant!
You could draw a picture of the fun you have had in the snow.  Write a few sentences about the adventure you have had. 
Do not forget your capital letters, fingers spaces or full stops.  Make sure you slide into each letter and flick out!
Have you got a pack of cards or numbers cards at home? Ask your grown up, sibling or friend to play this game with you. 
Put the pile of cards face down. Take it in turns to turn a card over, do not say the number on the card, instead say the number which is one less. The person who says the number the quickest, wins the card.  Who will have the most amount of cards at the end? Next you could play the game saying one more.  Challenge yourself to say two more or less! 
If you took some time out from playing in the snow yesterday to do some of the activities, we are looking forward to seeing what you did.  Tell your friends what you did and find out the activities they chose to do.  We will make a class 'snowy days' book with all of your work.  It will be great to look back at the snowy weather fun and activities when we have beautiful hot sunshine in the summer months!
Remember, it is very slippery outside, so tread carefully- no broken bones please!
We are looking forward to hearing all of your snow news when we return to school. 
One last thing -
What did the snowman have for breakfast?
Frosted snowflakes!

Snow Day 2

We hope you have all enjoyed playing in the snow!  Have you made a snowman or lady?  Thrown a snowball?  Sledged down a hill or had a hot chocolate to warm up?  Whatever you have been up to, we hope you have had fun!


We thought you might like some ideas to do at home as the school is closed for another day.  Below are some ideas.  If you have any photos of the fun you have had in the snow or produced any of these ideas, we would love to see them.


Cut out shapes and arrange them into a giant snowflake.  You could add glitter/sparkly bits to make it extra snowy!


Measure the snow in your garden/by your front door or on your windowsill and see how deep it is.  Record the measurements in cm and we can see who had the deepest snow.


Have a snowball throwing contest.  Make a target by creating a big circle in the snow using a stick.  See who can get their snowball nearest to the centre of the target.


Bring some snow indoors (in a cup) and see how long it takes to melt.  Use a clock or a stopwatch to time it.


Design a front cover for your favourite book.  It is World Book Day tomorrow - so bring your design and favourite book back to school when we return.


Listen to your grown ups, be good and have lots of fun in the snow - it doesn't happen often!

Sunrise Apple. 
The sunrise apple is a modern apple developed at the Summerland Research Centre in Canada and it is one of the best early-season apples, harvested in August.  The Sunrise apple produces heavy crops and is perfect for creating sweet apple juice. 

Welcome Back!



We hope you have had a lovely summer holiday. We are looking forward to spending lots of time with you and getting to know you better. 



This term we will be learning all about you! We will find out about the different parts of your body and how they work. Can you hokey kokey? 


What is inside your body that helps it to grow and move?


Perhaps you might be able to tell us about your home and the people you share your home with. What does your home look like? Does it have steps leading to the front door? Do you have a garden? How many bedrooms does your home have?
Can you draw a picture of your home to bring in to show us?



This term we will also find out about feelings, what can make our feelings change, and how to understand what our friends are feeling. How are you feeling today?
