This term, we are looking at The Antarctica. The children will carry out map work to identify the Antarctica, discussing the environmental concerns/climate change about the Antarctic today. They will study about the creatures in Antarctica and their habitat. They will also carry out a research on the Antarctica and present their information to the rest of the class.
The children will have opportunities to investigate what else was happening at the time of Ernest Shackleton's landmark expedition crossing the Antarctic from one pole to the other; explore the historical context of the First World War. They will find out about other famous explorers such as Scott, Cook and Amundsen.
