This term our topic is: 


Why Antarctica? 

Why are we teaching this topic? Why is it relevant? For the children to know how to sustain and improve the environment and consider the needs of present and future generations, it is important for our children to gain a knowledge and understanding of Antarctica – the landscape, the geography and the wildlife. By using critical and enquiring minds, the children will consider the environmental issues facing Antarctica and they will contemplate what they can do to have a positive impact on its future. This will also allow them to be creative and resourceful, recognizing their responsibilities within the global community.

As always, we will read many books together this term. Some of these are:
