Welcome to the planet’s coldest lands. 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 treacherous terrain to the ends of the Earth, treading deep in snow or being 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, temperature, 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 iceberg that hides deep beneath the Southern Ocean. Wrap up well and settle by the fire. I’m just going outside and may be some time.
Below is our project knowledge organiser, this gives you more information on what the children will learn this term.
In Term 2, our whole-class guided reading text will be 'Shackleton's Journey'.
In writing, we will use Shackleton's Journey as inspiration for our non-fiction writing with a focus on settings. Our non-fiction text this term will be a non-chronological report based on an Arctic or Antarctic animal.
In Term 2, we will continue learning about Multiplication and Division and then start to learn about fractions.
P.E this term will be on a Monday and a Wednesday.
