You've done this with Mrs Griffin but it was a while ago.


The Snowflake Mistake


Have you ever wondered how snowflakes are made?


Listen to Suranne Jones read 'The Snowflake Mistake' 


The Snowflake Mistake


Talk about the story with your grown-up.


Have you ever made a mistake?


How did you feel?


What do you think Ellie thought the Snow Queen might say about the snowflakes she had made?


Being different made them all special. What makes you special?


Can you build a castle for Ellie and her Mum to live in? You could use Lego or Duplo or cardboard. You could draw your design on paper first and then have a go at making it.

When you have finished take a photograph or make a video telling us about it.




Could you design a new snowflake making machine to replace the one Ellie broke in the story? Perhaps you could draw one?


Look at the PowerPoint below to find out how snowflakes are made.


Click on the speaker symbol on the first page to hear me explain how they are made. On the second page there is a time lapse video of snowflakes forming. You might have to agree to external content to make it work.


Can you make some snowflakes from paper?


Have a lovely day,


Mrs Rogers
