Good morning everyone!
We hope you have all been enjoying the snow. Lots of you sent us pictures of your snowmen, snow ladies and snow pigs! It looks like you all had lots of fun on your sledges also!
Lets get warmed up for our learning by starting with our morning exercise!
Yesterday you thought about changing the characters in the story. For example, in my story I decided that instead of the Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf, I would have Three Little Goats and the Big Bad Dog.
Today we would like you to design a house for your new characters. You can be as creative as you like so use your imagination! You could draw it, build it or make a collage using craft materials. Have fun!
Look at the photo below of the house I designed for the Three Little Goats. The first one is a rainbow house and the second one is a house of leaves! Although I think if my goats lived in a house of leaves they would eat it!
This week we are learning about 3D shapes. Today we are going to be making the new characters in your story using 3D shapes. Look at the pictures below. I have made the Three Little Goats using cylinders and the Big Bad Dog using a cone.
We would like you to draw your new characters on cylinders and cones like in the picture below.
To make a cone you will need to start with a semi - circle, and to make a cylinder you will need to start with a rectangle. Ask a grown up to help you.
If you have any snow left in your garden you could use a stick to make shapes in the snow. Can you name the shapes I have drawn. I have also drawn a house of snow for the Three Little Goats! Lets hope the snow doesn't melt!
