What is so cool about the Arctic?
On Wednesday 11th October, 6C took part in a multi-schools event run by Wicked Weather Watch. The day was both interesting and informative and provided the children with the opportunity to work on a variety of skills and objectives. The day focused on the Island of Svalbard, Norway, which is where our Guided Reading book 'The Last Bear' is set. In the morning, the children discovered what the Arctic region is like, analysed some data about the weather in Svalbard and were set a challenge to build an igloo out of sugar cubes. In the afternoon, the children heard from a real-life explorer, who had visited Svalbard, and thought about how they could reduce their carbon footprints.
