Term 2 Frozen
This term we will become Arctic Explorers as we discover what life is like on our frozen planet. We will learn about the flora and fauna found in the polar regions and find out how animals have adapted to living in such a cold environment. We will discuss the differences between the Arctic and Antarctica as well as learn about the life of indigenous people who live in the Arctic circle, considering what similarities and differences their are with our own lifestyle.
Together we will also investigate the concepts of melting and freezing, exploring why things melt and freeze before finishing our topic by finding out about the very first Christmas.

The Snowball by Sue Hendra
Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers
The Emperor’s Egg by Martin Jenkins
Poles Apart by Jeanne Willis
The Jolly Christmas Postman by Allen Ahlberg and Janet Ahlberg
Ten Little Elves by Mike Brownlow & Simon Rickerty
