Book Review

Have you read any Roald Dahl books? There are lots to choose from in our local library.  Read a Roald Dahl book together then write  a book review about this to tell others what you enjoyed about this.  There is a printable book review at the bottom of this page that you can use - or create your own.  It would be great to see these in school and possibly display in our class book corner too.


Did you know that Roald Dahl wrote some poems too?

Snow Day Ideas

How lucky we are to have a day to enjoy the snow.  There are lots of ideas and activities to keep you busy today and the best part is these are all inspired by the cold white stuff itsself!

  • Go outside and build a snowman, have a snowball fight. Think about how the snow feels, smells, what it looks like.  Draw a picture or take a photograph of your snowy fun then brainstorm adjectives around this to describe the snow.
  • Create a snow acrostic poem: The first letter on each line should begin with the letters to make the word snow (there is a printable worksheet for this at the bottom of the page). Can you challenge yourself to write an acrostic for another word inspired by the snow too? Here are some ideas: snowman, frost, winter.
  • Create a fishbone diagram for the snow (print out below) to show what you can see, hear, smell, feel and even taste on this snowy day
  • How many different snow descriptions can you think of? Can you think of any similes to describe the snow.  Here are some ideas to get you started: The snow is as white as milk. It is whiter than cotton wool.

Enjoy your snow fun day and stay safe.  We look forward to seeing some of your snow inspired work when we return to school again.
