                     Our topic this half term is FROZEN PLANET. We'll  start by making and observing icebergs and research them to find out how they are formed, where do they go and how dangerous are they??  Using globes and maps, we’ll identify the polar regions, comparing the Arctic and Antarctic. We’ll also think about how we can protect the polar environment. Then, we’ll investigate the tragic story of the RMS Titanic, and find out about the people on board.  Researching our favourite polar animals will be fun, and we’ll create animal artwork inspired by the Inuit people. We’ll investigate the phenomena that are the Northern Lights and recreate amazing effects using paints and dyes.
