Year 4 Update

16th December 2016

This winter children in Year 4 have loved finding out about the Arctic and Antarctica in our “Frozen Planet” topic. We found out about early explorers and wrote newspaper reports about their exploits. We researched penguins and found that global warming and over-fishing has affected them greatly. We hope you like our penguin pictures which we did with shaving foam printing. In December we were lucky enough to have a visit from Conrad Dickinson, a real-life Polar explorer, who told us all about his amazing experiences, meeting polar bears in the Arctic and trekking to the South Pole with Prince Harry. He said that it was really hard work, which is what makes it such a great achievement. We plan to take this positive attitude into the spring term!

Happy New Year!
