Spring Term 2019 - Half Term 1
Our topic is 'Frozen Kingdom'
Welcome to the planet's coldest lands... vast wilds and hostile territories - incredibly beautiful, yet often deadly. Take shelter from the elements or fall prey to icy winds and the deepest chill. Trek bravely and valiantly across treacherous terrain to the ends of the Earth, treading deep in snow or be pulled by a team of mighty sled dogs.
Be alert, for magnificent mammals roam these lands, sometimes hungry or fresh for a fight. Perhaps a hungry polar bear or an arctic fox is hunting rodents, as swift as the wind!
So wrap up well, everyone and settle by the fire. I'm just going outside and may be some time...
Our topic for the first half of the spring term is 'Frozen Kingdom'. The main focus will involve looking at the coldest parts of our planet. Pupils will research facts and figures of climate, temperature, habitats and eco-systems.
