5 Tubby Snowmen

How many snowmen can you count?
Sing along with me and watch the snowmen melt on the spot.

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.

Lost In The Snow This is a lovely book by Ian Beck about a teddy who gets lost in the snow and has lots of wonderful adventures. Father Christmas takes him home safely and before anyone really notices he is gone. A great story to read aloud, great text for retelling and making story maps.

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?


My cold winter day walk. Today it was very cold, wet and icy. Here are some pictures of my walk and some of trees I saw with twigs in bud and catkins

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.
