Bourchier St Primary School students dressed in pyjamas and enjoyed hot chocolate, apple crumble and pumpkin soup.
Bourchier St Primary School was transformed into a snowy wonderland yesterday as Year 1 students snuggled up for a special winter day.
Students wore their best pyjamas to school and wrapped themselves in blankets while watching the Disney film Frozen and making pumpkin soup, apricot and apple crumble and hot chocolate.
The hallway was a landscape of ‘‘snow’’ — shredded paper teachers have been collecting for weeks.
Year 1 teacher Alice Symons said the day was part of the procedural writing the students had been studying and a fun way to incorporate the cold winter weather.
‘‘It’s the perfect winter’s day lunch,’’ Ms Symons said.
‘‘The kids came in all excited this morning and had a ball sitting in the fake snow. It puts real life into learning for them.’’
Year 1 student Chloe Bray, 6, said her favourite part about winter was eating soup and she would see snow for the first time this year.
‘‘Sometimes in other countries, it snows,’’ she said.
‘‘I’m going to the mountains in the school holidays. I think the snow will be cold and rough.’’
Year 1 student Aiden Chaston, 7, likes to have warm drinks on chilly days.
‘‘I go under a blanket to keep warm,’’ he said.
‘‘We get to have hot chocolates.’’
