Welcome to

Whissendine CE Primary School

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. 


Our focus books this term are:

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

The First Christmas from The Children’s Bible


We just can't wait to get started on our Arctic adventure!
