At the start of this term, Year 2 came into school to find an exciting surprise in our classroom. It was a mysterious box in the middle of the room and it was surrounded by snow. We didn’t know what it was or where it had came from!
We had a peek inside and found some images of the Arctic and a letter from the distant relative of an explorer. He told us that he had adopted a polar bear for our class and he sent us a cuddly toy polar bear called Snowy to have as a mascot.
This week, Year 2 have been busy investigating the food chains in the Polar regions and making mobiles to show who eats who, looking at images of the Northern Lights and making our own artwork using chalks and researching facts about polar bears.
