Choose whether you would like to write a poem about a seal or an albatross.
After watching the seal and/or the albatross nature videos, we are going to practise writing expanded noun phrases to describe your chosen animal.
Expanded noun phrase:
Adjective, Adjective + noun

If your child is finding it tricky and would benefit from some more practice, they can also complete the strengthen challenge.
We are having the most incredible snowy weather at the moment! For Wonder Wood and PE this afternoon, you may prefer to try some of our snow activities posted on our home page.
You could save Mrs Stollery's bird watching lesson until half term.
This week I would like you to become a nature detective.
I would like you to go for a long walk, keep your eyes open and your ears listening for birds.
You will need a piece of paper and a pencil to note down what you see.
Look at the birds carefully from a distance:
What colour are their feathers?
What colour legs and feet do they have?
Do they have a short or long beak?
Are they tiny birds or large birds?
When you have found three birds you can enjoy the rest of your walk listening to the sounds of nature.
When you get home you can find out the names of the birds you found using the RSPB bird finder.
