Work for Snow Day Closure

The following work is to be completed during the Snow Day on Thursday.

Education City: There are six exercises. Choose four to complete (two maths and two English comprehensions)

English: read the poem Snow by Walter de la Mare below. Write your own snow poem in this style (De la Mare uses an ABCB rhyming pattern) or a style of your own.

No breath of wind,
No gleam of sun –
Still the white snow
Whirls softly down
Twig and bough
And blade and thorn
All in an icy
Quiet, forlorn.
Whispering, rustling,
Through the air
On still and stone,
Roof, – everywhere,
It heaps its powdery
Crystal flakes,
Of every tree
A mountain makes;
‘Til pale and faint
At shut of day
Stoops from the West
One wint’ry ray,
And, feathered in fire
Where ghosts the moon,
A robin shrills
His lonely tune.
