I'd studiously avoided Frozen, I'm not that keen on Disney films. This probably dates back to 1960 when my Grandmother took me to see Pinocchio and I got so distressed I had to be taken out of the cinema. But Rosie has been given an Elsa dress, and the dolls, and she can sing all the songs... So Wednesday was Frozen Day.

Lesson planning is so much easier now than when I began teaching. Find a few pictures online, and copy and paste them to a pre-prepared addition worksheet - and voila! It's a Frozen Sheet. Anna, Elsa, Olaf etc are good short words for reading and writing practice. So it was easy to put a morning's activities together. Our art and craft in the afternoon was folding and cutting snowflakes [the side door now leads into Arandelle]

And I firmly believe that children engage with lessons if they are interested in the topic. When we'd finished decorating the door, Rosie gasped "frozen fractals all around!". [ that's a line from the film's hit song "Let it Go"] I'm not sure she's quite ready for learning all about fractals yet - but maybe when she's older this week's work will prove a good foundation. 


  1. She is such a cute Elsa! I love the snowflakes on the door. It looks frosty! Maybe if I were to stick some snowflakes on my sliding glass door, I can forget the 100F degree temperatures! :D

  2. I'd like to come to your school, please.

  3. What an incredible teacher you are! And Rosie is always adorable.
    Hope you enjoy a nice relaxing weekend.

  4. What a cutie.

  5. I think those snowflakes look marvellous! You definitely new to save those for Christmas and put them up again! I quite enjoyed Frozen and the sequel. We did a children's concert of The Snowman with narrator and as an additional item in the programme, the wind did a really charming quintet arrangement of Frozen. I really enjoye playing it.

    1. Rosie loves the songs and knows all the words
