See below for snow day activities the children can do:
- Practise saying aloud sounds and reading tricky words (see laminated sheets that we sent home).
- Practise writing sounds/words. Think of words which begin with these sounds and draw a picture for each word. E.g. s – snowman, h – hat
- Read a variety of books at home- spot digraphs/trigraphs and tricky words!
- Build a snowman with 8 buttons on his body, a nose, 2 eyes, 10 pebbles for a mouth and give him a hat and scarf. Use your own ideas to make a smaller friend for your snowman. Count and record how many items you used.
- Get an adult to time you – how many snowballs can you make in one minute?
- Build the biggest snowman you can build and then measure it with your hands to see how many hands tall it is. Take a picture to show us, or write down what you found.
- 3D Snow Shapes: Can you make 3D shapes out of the snow?
Think about different 3D shapes like cones, cubes, pyramids, cuboids. Have a go at making some out of snow (you could fill up a container of the right shape and make snow castles of that shape). Can you have a go at labelling the shapes you used and take a photo.
- Practise writing your numbers 0 – 10
- Go on a number hunt. You can do it in your house or village/town. Draw or take pictures of the numbers you find.
