This half term we have started looking at the Polar Regions and the children have started to complete some very good work across all the curriculum. This has included some very interesting fact files in English to some wonderful Polar Bear pictures created during Art.
This week the children have also performed some drama based on a class book we are looking at called 'The Rainbow Bear'. See attached slide show.
In our Topic work we have started looking at an Antarctic explorer called Ernest Shackleton who was best known for leading the 'Endurance' expedition of 1914-16.
Sadly we had to say goodbye to Maisie before Christmas but have said a welcoming hello to William.
This Week our Work of the Week goes to Lewis for a fantastic maths work on inverse calculation. Well Done!
