Welcome back to a new school year. We all hope you had a well deserved break and are ready for the year ahead.
We will continue to work hard to get the best improvement out of the children and to make the year as enjoyable as we can. As parents/guardians it would be of great benefit to aid us in this by getting the children to read for 20 minutes each evening and to sign their diaries to say they have done so. We expect the pupils to write into their diaries what book they have read along with what pages and parents/guardians to just initial.
This year we will be studying a range of different topics. In this term we will be working through Frozen Kingdom!
Welcome to the planet’s coldest land…. 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 the 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!
Research facts and figures of climate, temperatures, habitats and ecosystems, and compose evocative poems about the Northern Lights.
Become part of an Antarctic rescue team, braving the elements to rescue terrified passengers from a ship struck by a deadly berg that hides deep beneath the Antarctic Ocean.
So wrap up well everyone and settle by the fire. I’m just going outside and maybe some time…….
