Non-Fiction Winter

Hello everyone!

This week’s story is another non-fiction book, Winter.  Do you remember what non-fiction means?  It’s a book that tells  you something true, something that is real, facts, information.  They are really useful books to explain why things happen.  What do you think the non-fiction book, Winter will be about?

What did you find most interesting?  Is it the way the frost settles on the ground in the mornings?  Maybe you found the bit about hibernation the most interesting?  I wonder if you’ve had a stew or soup to eat during the cold weather?

Can you remember the names of all  the seasons? I bet you can remember at least one other Season of the year – Autumn, the season just before Winter, we talked a lot about that when we were altogether at school.  Which season comes after Winter?   Go outside today and look around, what signs of Winter do you see?

The activities suggested below aren’t new to you but the websites might be nice to peruse and may spark different interests.  Of course, snowshoeing in the UK can be challenging without snow but it might be fun to make your own and pretend, all you need are 2 pieces of cardboard and some string.  Wrap them around your feet and off you go!

Until next time, do good looking for adventures, clean your ears out for good listening and turn your noggins (brains) on for good learning.

Take care and stay safe,
