I hope that you’re all safe and have been enjoying all of this snow! I bet you’ve all got interesting stories and I can’t wait to hear them all.
If you would like to complete some optional activities while the school is closed, here are some ideas for you:
Share a Story
Despite the snow, we would have been celebrating World Book Day today. Making sure that are wrapped up, why not build/find a snowman and read your favourite book to it! If the snowman starts talking back, don’t worry… this could mean many different things…
You should all have your spelling words for this week in your Home Learning jotter. Take advantage of the snow outside and write your words out in the snow!
*Gloves on, please!*
Build a Snow Family
Create a family of snow people and take some photos! Remember that we have been learning all about different types of families so bear this in mind when you’re deciding who’s who! You might even want to take a photo, stick it into your Home Learning jotter and write a little about their frozen lives.
*Gloves on again, please! And sharp pencils and neat handwriting too!*
Can you create an igloo? This is definitely more challenging than making a snow family. Watch some YouTube videos for some hints and tips and try it out for yourself. If your first attempt doesn’t work out, ask yourself why, re-thinking your strategy and try again. Remember what Robert the Bruce would have said…
*Yes, you’ve guess it. Gloves on again, please!*
Measure the Temperature
Do you have a thermometer lying around? If not, maybe you could use your phone or another electronic device to check the temperature.
Check the temperature once per hour and record your results in a table. What do you notice? Is there a relationship between the temperature and when it starts to snow?
Challenge: Turn your data you’ve collected into a bar graph!
You may have more ideas so the decision is yours! The three most important things to remember while the school is closed are:
- Stay safe
- Have fun
- Be good!
Make sure to keep an eye out on the news and the East Lothian Council website/Facebook page for information on school closures.
