Y5 Home learning- 10.03.23 SNOW DAY

We hope that you have a lovely snowy day today! As it is a school day, we have set you some work. We understand that you might not be set up for home learning today, so please do the best that you can in the circumstances. 


We are also holding a snowman competition! Ask an adult to Tweet your snowman picture on @sxjs and there will be a prize for the best snowman in each year group.

Art: We'd like you to do this first incase the snow melts!

Go in the snow and have fun.

Can you make a snowman or even something more creative?

As our art topic is photography, we'd like you to take some photographs that capture the fun you have been having in the snow. Remember to think about lighting and the composition of your photograph. Please send us your photographs so that we can use them as part of your art and so that we can see the fun that you've had.
