Hi Year 2!

Today is our 7th sentence stacking lesson. I just want to warn you that there are a couple of blurry moments in the videos but they don't last long and soon refocus so don't worry when it happens.

I'm looking forward to reading your writing later today!

Love from,

Class Sentence Stack



Can you imagine sleeping through the whole of Christmas and not knowing what Christmas is? When the glistening leaves fall off the trees, lots of animals go to bed and dream. The sun goes on holiday, the plants freeze like statues and the trees grow icicles on their bony branches.


Winter is Present

The ponds have turned to ice, the trees are dying and the plants are drowning in the snow. No jumping spiders in the forest, no dormice scrambling up the trees and no earthworms wriggling around.


Where Have all the Animals Gone?

It may seem like these creatures have vanished, but they are still there: safe, snuggly and settled. They are merely hibernating.


What Does Hibernation Mean?

You may think that hibernating is just sleeping but, it's life or death for some animals. Hibernation helps the animals survive throughout the bleakest, dullest, coldest time of year.


Why Hibernate?

Through the freezing cold months, a huge amount of animals battle to survive because it is a challenge to find food. When the world closes down for the foggier, snowier seasons, there are fewer berries, fruit, fish, worms and nuts for the living things to feast on. When the weather is fierce and foul, it is difficult for them to keep warm.


Problem Solvers

Extraordinarily, animals can slow their bodies right down so it looks like they are in a deep sleep. Their heart rate dwindles and their breathing and temperature lowers. This helps them to stay alive by retaining energy.
