Work for Friday 14th January.
Mrs Wordsmith Weather Word Snakes.
Above is an example of a word snake but this is using bird and animal names
Choose a selection of Mrs Wordsmith weather words from the resources above or any that you know. Write them all neatly and link them to others as in the picture. You could make them into snakes if you would like. You can write them backwards if that helps to link them. You could decorate with weather pictures if you can. For instance - a snake could be wearing a sun hat.
You may handwrite or do this on the computer.

Today we would like you to create a picture using potato printing.
It could be that you want to design a repeating pattern, or maybe create a tree. It is your choice. Do some research to see what other people have created.
Remember to be careful with sharp knives - ask an adult to do this part for you.
