I can't believe we're at the start of another week of home learning, I like to think of it as, a week closer to being back in school together. I hope you all had a good weekend and had fun playing in the snow! It certainly looked very wintery when I opened my curtains on Saturday morning, it made a nice change from all that rain!
It was lovely to speak to you and your parents last week and to hear how hard you’re working at home, I’m super proud of you all. Thank you to all Parents and Grandparents for your support and hard work, I know home learning is not easy for any of us and I really appreciate your kind words and support as we work together.
I really enjoy seeing all your posts on our school blog and look forward to seeing your smiley faces every day. If you have not already uploaded any photos please try and do this, this week. If you have any problems give me a call at school.
As always...take care, stay safe and keep smiling.

Knowledge and Understanding the World
Over the last few weeks we have been learning all about winter. It is one of the four seasons we have in our country. Watch the clips below to find out about the other seasons.
The weather in winter changes all of the time, it can be cold and icy or wet and windy. Keep a weather diary this week. You can use the chart below or create your own in your home learning book.
Many animals are now hibernating away out of the cold winter. Watch the PowerPoint to see which animals hibernate and where do they hide away?
Often the ground is frozen in the winter and it can be difficult for birds to find food.
Ice Experiment - Place some toys in a container with water and place in the freezer. Once they are frozen, experiment with different ways of how to help your toys escape. You could try adding water or salt and think of your own ideas too. I can't wait to see and hear all about how you managed to free your toys.
Creative and Physical development
Many famous artists have created pictures inspired by winter. Try to create one of these:
Look at the pictures of Monet's The Magpie and Houses in the Snow. Talk about cold colours and let children select some to use – blue, white, grey, silver, etc. Ask them to paint a snowy scene using their chosen colours.
Look at Abraham Teerlink’s painting The Snowstorm. Let children cut out the shape of winter trees, figures and buildings using black paper and stick onto a sheet of blue paper. Create the snowstorm using runny white paint splattered onto the paper using a toothbrush.
Enjoy all of your activities this wee. Remember to work hard and have fun.
