Snow Day display

The snow may be fading into a distant memory now that the weather has warmed up, but that hasn’t stopped a wonderful display from going up outside Mrs Bird’s Year 1 classroom!  She says:

“During the snow days I contacted the children through Class Dojo and asked them all to make a snowman and send a picture to me, as a sort of competition!  Each family in Year 1 did just that, and we now have this lovely ‘frosty forest’, in the corridor outside my classroom.”

Keen-eyed observers may also pick out a black and white photograph of Mrs Bird herself, as a six year old, building a snowman with her daddy!

Prep School pupil puts pen to paper

The recent snowfall has meant some inevitable disruptions, and a few of our pupils have had difficulty travelling to school.

For Rosie Ling in 2W, this didn’t mean a day in front of the television at home however! She set herself a task to write a poem inspired by the weather.


Snow Day

Crickle, crackle under my feet
The fields are covered with a white sheet

Showers of snowflakes fall to the ground
Making silent noise as they fall all around

Glistening tree tops above my head
Makes me happy and jump out of bed!

Animal footprints make trails in the snow
A Narnia world that makes my heart glow.
