P1 WAU - Winter

Week 3

This week continue to observe the weather and look for signs of winter. Depending on what weather we get, try any of the following: walk in the rain, jump in puddles, use a magnifying glass to look at raindrops, frost, ice, make more snowmen, snowballs and make marks in the frost.

 

WIND

  • Watch this short video on ‘What makes wind? https://youtu.be/yFkVunFpfbM
  • Try to learn the poem 'Who has seen the wind?' - this is one of my favourite childhood poem!
  • Talk about the wind, what it feels like; we can't see it but we can see what it does to things. If we have some wind this week try to do the following
  • Go outside, stand very still, close your eyes, listen. What do you notice? Open your eyes. What do you see?
  • Try ONE of the wind crafts below (there's also a rain activity in the link about 'Weather station craft instructions').

Week 2

This week continue to observe the weather and look for signs of winter. Depending on what weather we get, try any of the following: walk in the rain, jump in puddles, use a magnifying glass to look at ice, make more snowmen, snowballs and make marks in the frost. A little girl in our class told me on Friday that Elsa made the frost last week, not Jack Frost! What do you think? laugh

I didn’t get a chance to make my rain cloud in a jar but I’m going to try this week.

Plus:

 

SNOW

  • watch this short video on ‘Why does it snow? https://youtu.be/oZGS23QOLQU
  • Try to learn the rhyme 'Chubby Little Snowman'.
  • Talk about the winter clothes you have at home. Why do we wear them? What are they made from? What other items do you use in winter?
  • Try to design your own winter clothes.
  • Try to make some paper snowflakes. Use these instructions. 
  • Look at the different types of snowmen. We are learning to be creative. Try to make one over the course of the week.

Week 1

Our new topic is 'Winter'.

Click on the link below to talk about signs of Winter.

As part of our winter topic we will be looking at weather. Over the Christmas period we had wind, rain, snow and frost. Look at the weather over the course of this week, especially when you are out for a walk - what do you notice?

 

Rain

To link with our Literacy (sound 'r') we will be learning to recite the poem 'Raindrops'. Talk about rain / rain clouds and try to find out what makes it rain. I've included a little science experiment below on how to make your own rain cloud in a jar. Don't worry if you can't get blue food colouring, any colour will do. I'm going to have a go myself! Have fun.laugh
