I hope you’re all enjoying your time in the snow! Make sure you all stay safe and warm and have plenty of fun too! (apologies for the poor title pun)
Below are several activities for you to work on. From all of the options available, I would like you to choose TWO activities and complete them. With no homework book or school books available, I’m happy for you to present you work however you like – but please make sure it’s neat! If you would like to bring in any photos of your time in the snow we will share them as a class next week. You may even want to post them as a comment on the blog!
Science investigation – does exercise in the snow alter your heart rate?
Complete 3 sets of exercises. Once indoors and once outdoors in the snow. Is there any difference between the two settings? Remember your hypothesis beforehand, equipment, method, results, conclusion and evaluation.
Maths – measurements
We’ve been looking at many different measurements this week. When the snow falls, we all become experts at “measuring” the amount of snow. Well I would like you to measure far more accurately. Find 5 different amounts of snow and tell me exactly how much you have. You could measure the depth, height, weight or even collect a sample to melt down and measure the amount of snow liquid you have. Without your homework book, you’ll need to decide on how you’re going to record the information.
Writing – Frozen Fairy Tales
We’re focussed on Fairy Tales this term. What better inspiration than the weather outside? Use the scenery around you to write a short story based on snow and ice.
Use the scenery around you to create a poem based on snow and ice. Remember before we’ve written these poems by stating what we can see, smell, taste, touch, hear and think. But take out “I can see…” it becomes much more powerful!
Thinking back to our bird week challenge of recreating “Shhh! We have a plan”, have a go at making your own PowerPoint style story of the unsuccessful hunters. What could they be hunting in the snow and how might it go wrong? If you have no access to PowerPoint then try making your own storyboard of the events.
