THE ARCTIC: Country of the Month
Throughout January, we will be visiting the continent ‘Antarctica’, we will be exploring Arctic animals and their habitats such as Penguins, Polar Bears, Walruses, Puffins, the Arctic Fox and Snowshoe Hare! We will be creating our own Arctic small worlds using water, ice and other natural materials. We will be investigating ice through melting and freezing and adding colours.
We would be most grateful for any resources to support this topic such as story books.

Despite the freezing-cold temperatures that have dropped as low as –70°C, approximately four million people call this wintery wonderland “home”! Amongst these are the indigenous people of the Arctic, called the ‘Inuits‘. They’ve found ingenious ways to survive in one of the harshest environments on our planet.
