Snazzy Super Snowy Learning in P5!

1 03 2018

Happy St David’s Day P5L!

I hope you have all been outside enjoying the snow, building snowmen and making snow angels…who would believe it is the first day of spring?!


Why not wrap up warm and make your own symmetrical snow angels?

For some extra activities why not try some of these snowy challenges:

Snow Spelling

Get wrapped up warm and write your group spelling words in the snow and then take a photograph. Maybe you could use your boot prints to form your words instead of using your hands!

Snowball Arrays

Get wrapped up warm again and head outside to build snowball arrays for each of your multiplication facts. Challenge yourself and try one of the multiplication families that you find a little tricky!

Remember you can always practise your numeracy and maths skills online at Topmarks:

Snow-People Beetle Drive

Get wrapped up warm again and head outside to play a snow-people beetle drive.

Roll a dice for each of the following:

1 – head

2 – body

3 – eyes

4 – scarf

5 – nose

6 – mouth

The first person to build a completed snow-person is the winner! ENJOY!!!

Mini Winter Olympics

Get wrapped up warm again and build your own mini winter Olympics slalom sledge circuit. Make sure you build it in a safe place far from roads and pavements. Maybe in a park or back garden. Jump on a sledge and go for it! Wear a bike helmet if you are heading down hill just in case!

Art Attack

If you prefer  to stay indoors why not get creative and draw, paint or make a collage snowy scene to bring in to school to share with the class. You could look out the window and draw what you see or just use you imagination.

Snowy Adventure Writing

Grab a pencil and get writing! Use this story start to write your own imaginative adventure:

It was a bright, frosty morning. The pavement glistened like a carpet of crushed diamonds in the early morning sunshine.

Technology Challenge

Build a model snow mobile with all of your recycled rubbish – make sure any plastics are clean first and check with the adults at home!

Your snow mobile must have:

Two moving parts.

A place to store essential supplies.

A person to drive and control it.

Lights and a radio for emergencies.

Happy World Book Day 2018!

Get wrapped up warm and head outdoors to read your favourite book and share some stories with your friends and family. Take a photograph to share with the class when we are back at school.

Or if you prefer staying indoors, get comfortable under your duvet with your favourite book and have a cosy read. Challenge yourself Рhow many pages or chapters or even books can you read in a day? HAPPY WORLD BOOK DAY!

These are just a few ideas, I am sure you and your family and friends have thought of many other exciting snowy activities to enjoy together. Most of all stay warm and safe P5 ;0)

Take good care and hopefully I will see you all soon.
