With a chilly start to the new term, the children across the Nursery and Pre-Prep were introduced to their new topic: Pole to Pole.
The children arrived back to find a few surprises, which piqued their curiosity. Amazed to find penguins and polar bears had moved into the classroom, the children embraced their new friends with excitement.
Teaching in each year group will centre on a variety of themes linked to this exciting and varied area of learning. Children have been using maps to find the Arctic Circle and will be researching and learning new facts about its countries, oceans, Arctic animals and the Inuit.
The term will culminate in a trip to Drusillas Park giving the children the opportunity to see real life penguins and learn more about other polar animals.
