Spring Term 1 - 2021

Frozen Kingdom

We will be learning all about the polar regions this term. Our Topic work will be a mixture of geography and history activities. The art styles and techniques used by the Inuit people will be our inspiration in Art. In Science, Polar animals will be our focus when we look at classification of animals and their adaptations to enable them to survive in these harsh conditions. 

Please use the documents below to help you prepare for this term's learning.

You will also find the lists of spellings that you will need to practise this term.
