Welcome to 1R
This half term our topic is
We have been learning all about the coldest places on earth; The Arctic and The Antarctic!🌍❄️
We have learnt lots about the different types of animals that live in each, in particular, penguins and polar bears.🐧
We have watched lots of real life clips of penguins, and know all about how they look after their chicks.🐣
Did you know, the penguin daddy looks after the egg on his feet for 2 whole months while the mummy penguin goes hunting?🐟
He has to keep the egg very safe so it doesn't get too cold or crack.
We made our own penguin eggs and investigated how long we could keep them on our feet whilst waddling.
It was much harder that it looks!
Please check back for the latest news, key dates and photographs of what we have been up to!
Remembrance Day 2018 - 100 years
The children learnt all about why we wear poppies on remembrance day and some of us shared stories of our families who served in the wars. We enjoyed looking at the photographs some of the children brought in - thank you!
After watching a short animation showing how the battlefields changed after the war had finished, we painted our own poppy fields using watercolours and finger painting. The results were beautiful!
