With the snowy weather continuing we have really enjoyed hearing and seeing what you have been up to at home.
Coen has been busy drawing a picture on his iPad. He also did a great job completing his Zones of Regulation descriptive word activity.
Coen completed a STEM challenge building a bridge out of snow. Coen was able to make a bridge that was strong enough to hold 2kg. He tested it’s strength holding 4.5kg but this was too heavy!

He also made a fantastic picture of a snowman using pompoms – Great work Lucas!

🌨️SNOW DAY❄️ by Merryn
“ITS FREEZING!!” screamed Nell,
“What did you expect running in the snow without a jacket on?” Eva said rolling her eyes. She was right though it was freezing. The snowflakes fell quickly on the ground piling up against the windows and doors and it was one of Nell’s not so brilliant idea to go out the moment Eva got up. Nell had gone out so early and so suddenly that she still had her pyjamas on. Eva couldn’t feel her nose and her toes were going numb, “Come on Nell please can we go inside its cold,” she whined
“UGH Eva you are sooo boring come on loosen up!!” Nell didn’t listen to Eva’s moans and kept digging in the 4 inch snow.
About ten minutes later Nell gave in and went inside to have some hot chocolate which Eva said was more cream and marshmallows than actual hot chocolate. “Can we go out again please!?” Begged Nell
“NOOO” screeched Eva ,
“oh Eva just go” their mother told her. Properly bundled up now Nell went back to digging in the snow ,”what are you doing now?” Whined Eva
“I am making an igloo” Nell replied as if this was the most obvious thing in the world.
Half an hour later they were in the igloo and it wasn’t so cold in there, “What now?” Yawned Eva sleepily,
“Let’s go inside” Nell said because their noses were turning rosey pink.
Then they went in for some cheese and pickle sandwiches and a big banana milkshake each,
“did you have fun girls?” Mum asked them
“Yeah I suppose,” Eva said
“Yeah definitely!” Nell exclaimed.
Out they went again this time making a very large snowman and named him Jeff (courtesy of Nell).
“Can we go back in the igloo please Nell?” Eva asked rubbing her hands together
“ Yes please” replied Nell rosy-faced. It was toasty in there and Nell almost fell asleep, “ GIRLS COME INSIDE THERES GOING TO BE A SNOWSTORM” their mum called out of the window; they ran as fast as they could and got inside just as the storm started. After hanging up their coats, hats and gloves
They scrambled to the couch and snuggled up in big cozy blankets to have their tea and watch a movie. Afterwards Nell got out a board game and they spent an hour playing that (Eva won.) Then Nell fell asleep on the couch so their mum carried her to her room while she was doing that Eva walked over to the window and could’ve sworn the snowman twitched his sticky arm Eva shook her head making her long brown hair fall over her eyes, that can’t be right she thought and went to bed
