This week in Geography we are looking at cold places eg. the Arctic, Antarctica. Our learning objectives are about

  • identifying the north and south poles

  • exploring the physical features and animals that live in the north and south poles

Did you know that polar bears and penguins will never meet in the wild? Find out why? Antarctica is home to many species of penguins. Try to find out as much as you can about Penguins and their habitat. Write a report about what you find out.

Get your blanket and snuggle up warm while you watch the introduction to Frozen Planet which can be found on You Tube. It shows a snapshot of life in these cold places.

In geography this week we will be focusing on the animals which live in the North and South Poles and writing a non chronological report about them.  Choose your favourite polar animals to find out about and write a report. I have included a fact file for you with lots of information about the different polar animals.
