4NH & 6HD Geography Day

Posted: 18th October 2018


During Geography Day, 6HD and 4NH teamed up to explore ‘Snow’. We investigated questions such as ‘Why is snow white?’ and ‘How is snow made?’ before discovering amazing facts about this particular type of weather and making our own fake snow. Did you know that all snowflakes have 6 points? Later on in the day, in year 6, we analysed the different feelings people have about snow and worked on short dramas to convey these emotions. We also looked at different ‘snow’ poetry analysing the language features used by the poet. We created our own original poems centred around the loneliness and desolation snow can cause and then produced a piece of artwork to reflect our writing. Year 4 designed and made some beautiful snow globes.
