Around the World - The Arctic

We are so busy in Reception - this week we have travelled from the heat of the desert to the chilly Arctic! When we arrived, we met the Inuit people and learnt how they live - then we had a go at building igloos and ice fishing, even though we didn't have that much ice. As well as comparing the seasons and weather with our own, we have studied facts about polar bears (ask us about their amazing paws), Arctic foxes and narwhals, and in maths we learnt how to make a polar bear from the shapes in a tangram. Then in our Arctic PE lesson, we walked like bears, hopped like Arctic hares and practised overarm throwing by aiming 'snowballs' at targets. All this as well as learning lots more digraphs and tricky words and working with the number 7. Phew!
