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 be pulled by a team of mighty sled dogs.
Research facts and figures of climate, temperature, habitats and ecosystems, about a selected country and compare with polar regions.
In this topic there is a geography focus in which the children will be learning about the features of polar regions and a history focus in which the children will be learning about the Titanic and its ‘brush’ with an iceberg. Year 6 will also be junk modelling ‘fantastic creatures’ based on Inuit People’s art.
