Polar Brrrrr!

The children in Year 2 have thoroughly enjoyed learning about the Arctic. We were able to introduce the topic in a very exciting way at the start of the year with our Snow Day! We had a little taste of what it would be like to live with extreme cold weather conditions!

Whilst studying the Arctic the children have used Maps and Globes to find the Arctic Circle and list the countries that make up the Arctic.  They have looked at Arctic Cities, finding out about Human Features. Did you know they have tower blocks, roads, and even cars in the Arctic?! They have considered the seasonal changes and how this affects the weather and even the amount of daylight they get in the Arctic.

We have investigated Arctic animals and discussed how they are able to live in such cold and harsh conditions. The children in English created a whole class information book about Polar Bears. They worked in groups, each group taking on a different chapter in the book, and presented their work in an informative and interesting way. They then produced some beautiful art work of a Polar Bear and the Northern Lights, which is proudly displayed in the classroom. We also had a very interesting discussion about what causes the Northern Lights!

We are finishing off our topic by studying the Inuit people past and present and Arctic Explorers. We have been so impressed by the children's’ knowledge and enthusiasm, they have embraced every aspect of the topic and produced work to a very high standard.
