Frozen Kingdom

Welcome to the planet's coldest lands... vast wilds, hostile territories, incredibly beautiful yet often deadly. Take shelter from the elements or fall prey to icy winds and deepest chill. Trek bravely and valiantly across treacherous terrain to the ends of the Earth, treading deep in snow pulled by a team of mighty sled dogs.

 

This topic covers climate change, temperature, habitats, ecosystems and many other scientific and geographical elements, as well as evocative poetry and the exciting history of polar exploration in the early 1900s. Our class reading book will be The Call of the Wild by Jack London and Kaspar Prince of Cats by Michael Morpurgo.

We have begun our topic by looking at icebergs and thinking about their formation and why they float. The had a competition to build a boat that floated using the scientific knowledge we had gained. Some were more successful than others! 

Researching polar exploration

We have been looking at the Northen Lights in art and English. We have also seen photos from Mrs Shelton when she was lucky enough to see them. We are going to be writing our own Haiku poem, and have been able to look at the structure and features of ones about Arctic and Antarctic animals. More marvellous homework shown this week.
