We are going to make comparisons between hot and cold places.
It is January and very cold where we live in Manchester in England.
Let's start with a winter day cold story.
Understanding of the World
What can you see in January in your garden or when you are out and about when you go for your walks?
Jack frost had been in my garden this morning and all the branches were white with frost. I went for a walk down in the meadows and I saw twigs and branches beginning to bud and grow.
I collected a few to put in a vase at home. Can you do the same?
Creative Development / Writing practise
Look closely at twigs in bud and catkins.
See if you can draw or paint a picture of twigs in bud.
Some twigs are curly, some are straight, can you draw straight and curly lines,
The catkins hang down from the branches - can you draw catkins?
Buds are beginning to grow and sometimes they are sticky to touch,
Can you draw round sticky buds?
Before you start your picture write your name on the back of your work on the top left hand corner. Perhaps you could copy your name.
Some places are hot all year around.
The jungle is a hot place all year around.
Miss Myles has found a story about a giraffe who lives in the hot jungle
