Mrs Mingstones has read the story ‘Man on the moon’ for Reception Class.
Hope you have had lots of fun in the snow this week. Which of the things did you do that Lola and her friends did?
You can draw a picture or print off some photos of your fun in the snow and write some words or sentences to go with your pictures. You could make a snowy collage. There is a lovely book called ‘The Snowy Day’ that you can read to your child using the following link The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats – The British Library (bl.uk)
Don’t forget to send in your pictures of work and your snowmen biscuits if you made any.
As a follow on, the children could choose their favourite arctic animal and find out 3 amazing facts about it. With your help they could note these down and draw a picture, or cut out a picture of the animal and label it. You can go to ‘Twinkl Go’ and enter in the code on the image to access the PowerPoint.
If you can gather some resources together, they could have a go at the science activity, investigating how polar bears keep warm, that is in your pack https://www.science-sparks.com/how-do-animals-stay-warm-in-winter/ . You don’t need gloves if you don’t have them, they could just coat their finger in fat.
They could also watch Andy’s arctic adventures on cbeebies. https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b09s39xl/andys-safari-adventures-series-1-4-andy-and-the-arctic-fox
and do Andy’s arctic workout, which they did a couple of weeks ago.
If you find the instructions below difficult to follow, there are plenty of videos like the one below online. HAVE FUN!
Don’t forget to send to your pictures.
If you want to know more about how a snowflake is made, these are some child friendly videos.
