Cold outside

This week we have been looking at stories with Arctic animals in and books about being an arctic explorer. We have thought about the winter season, comparing it to the books we have been reading. The children explored the school grounds using a map using their senses to focus on different things in different places. We imagined what it would be like to climb mountains, escaping polar bears in thick snow, listening to the different animal sounds and the textures we could feel. There has been lots of teamwork sharing ideas and extending each other’s ideas and forming some great new friendships.
