Spring Term 2018
Our topic this term is called Poles Apart, the pupils will have the opportunity to explore their understanding of the geography of the world from Pole to Pole.
We will study the Polar regions and find out about the environment and wildlife; contrasting the Artic with the Antarctic. We will also learn about time zones and the impact of climate change and the importance of protecting these important environments.
In English and History we will focus on the life of Ernest Shackleton and other polar explorers; developing research skills and our understanding of fact and opinion. We will find out about Shackleton's ill fated Endurance expedition of 1914 -17 and the courage and leadership that he showed in the face of adversity, using this research we will write a biographies of Shackleton and Robert F Scott ( Scott of the Antarctic)
In Science we will learn about forces, looking at friction, gravity and resistance.
Our art work will focus on paintings and collages of the polar regions and portraits of the explorers. It promises to be a very exciting topic.
