 Dear Children

 

 

We hope you had an amazing Christmas spending time with your family and friends.  Are you ready to continue your learning journey in Year 1 this Spring term?  

 

This term, our topic is called ‘Poles Apart’ and we will be exploring what it might be like to live in either the North or South Pole.  We will find out where the North and South Pole is in the world.  We will be finding out about animals that live in these cold regions and comparing them to animals that live in our climate.

 

Have you ever thought about how Polar animals adapt to their environment?  Do they really need thick fur to keep them warm?  What colour is a polar bear's fur?  

 

Also this term, our love for authors will continue as we explore the author Jez Alborough and his story called ‘Cuddly Duddly’ which is about a polar animal. 

 

Throughout the term, we will be thinking about great polar explorers, such as Ernest Shackleton and Sir Ranulph Fiennes, and their great adventures. 

Do you know how they travelled to the poles? 

Was their expedition a success? 

How have expeditions to the polar regions changed over the years? 

 

We look forward to sharing the next term with you!
