See how we spent our snow day from school

Miss Marsland set us a challenge on our snow day.


'Good snowy morning, everyone. Here is a fun activity for you, if you wish, today. I hope you'll be able to get outside and make the most of the snow - we don't often get it like this. Today's fun activity - take a photo of something to do with the snow today (a snowman you've built, a view, you covered in snow, anything, just use your imagination) and send it to me on and I will put them on the school website. I've started you off with a view over the reservoir from the top of my house. 2 Dojos for any photos received. There may be more points the more interesting your photo is! Additional points for telling me the most interesting thing you can do with snow. I'm sorry we've had to close, but your safety is the most important thing. We will let you know later on about tomorrow, but it is snowing very heavily here and very very cold. I hope you do have a good day. Miss M.'

Day 2's tasks:


Today's challenge: several parts to keep you busy, but do remember it is only for fun, there is no expectation for you to do it.
        1. See how many words you can think of for, and to describe, snow eg snow, white, wet. A dojo for every 10 you find.
        2. Create a snow picture using snow, any things you find outside, or anything you like inside (with parents' permission, of course).

            Send  me a picture, and we'll add those to the gallery. 2 Dojos for every picture.
        3. See how many words you can make from the letters in the words ANOTHER SNOW DAY. You can't have another, snow or day, of

            course! Remember you can only use the letters that are there, so you can have a word with 2 As, or 2 Os, but only one E. A dojo for

            every 10 words in Reception, 15 in Years 1 and 2, 20 words in Years 3 and 4, and 25 in Years 5 and 6. I think I've just set myself a

            challenge in keeping up with all that lot! 5 extra Dojos if you can get more than 100, and 10 extra if you can beat me. I got 137. 
  If you'd rather just get out in the snow, have fun!

How To Freeze Soap Bubbles

Snow and ice have a beautiful way of slowing us down, allowing us to stop and see the beautiful details around us. Learn to make frozen bubbles in the snow and watch a tiny world come to life. Take a deep breath... relax those shoulders... and enjoy these magical creations.
