Hello everyone! Today is wonderful Wednesday and we are half way through the week already. Everyone made a great start to both home and school learning yesterday and we are very proud of you all.
We know that it hasn’t been the start to the year we were expecting. What we do know is that things will get better.

Everybody: accept, except, whether, weather, fair and fare

Our class book this term is called ‘The Rhythm of the Rain’ by Graheme Baker Smith. We are going to start reading this book next week, but for now we are going to the think about the title.
Job 1: Rhythm
What is rhythm? How could you link rhythm to rain?
Can you discuss the questions with your adult at home? Or use your online learning devices to help you find the answers?
Some music composers, such as a famous musician named Vivaldi, wrote and played music that was linked to different things such as the weather.
The video below includes lots of information about Vivaldi. Although the music is very interesting, we want you to watch the video and listen to the music. What type of weather does the music make you think of? Which season makes you feel happy or sad? The music is linked to weather at one minute to around two minutes and fifteen seconds.
Job 2: Describe the Weather
Rhythm and sound can help us imagine a weather type. For example a whistle sound might make you think of the wind.
What other adjectives could we use to describe the wind?
Complete the worksheets below by listing adjectives that describe each weather type.
Challenge: Can you write down a sound that describes each type of weather?
Job 1: Green pen challenge
Job 2: Roman numerals fact or fib?
