Literacy –  Write a snow day diary and include:

  • Expanded Noun Phrases; (The white, powdery fluff)
  • Fronted Adverbials; (As we played in the snow,)
  • Relative clauses; (which, who, that)
  • Parenthesis; (Brackets, dashes, commas)
  • Cohesive devices; (Additionally, alternatively) 
  • Prepositions for time (firstly, after, before)

Feel free to add photos from your day!

Arithmetic –  Snow day arithmetic

Science  – Research parts of a flower:

Science KS1 / KS2: The anatomy of the flower – BBC Teach Look at this video to help you. 

Can you label the parts of a flower and explain their function?

For example: Nectary – this is where nectar is made which attracts insects. 

Create a multiple choice quiz which explains how each part of a flower functions.

Snow –  Don’t forget to get out into the snow and enjoy it while it’s here.

Have a great day!

Feel free to also go on TTRS, Fiction Express and start your homework, which was stuck into your home books yesterday.
