Welcome to Class 4!
Mr Ferguson and Mrs Marron welcome you to Class 4.
This half term our topic is called:
Welcome to the planet's coldest lands...…..vast wilds, hostile territories, incredibly beautiful yet often deadly. Take shelter from the elements or fall prey to icy winds and deepest chill. trek bravely and valiantly across treacherous terrain to the ends of the Earth, treading deep in snow or pulled by a team of mighty sled dogs.
Be alert, for magnificent mammals roam these lands, sometimes hungry or fresh from a fight. Perhaps a hungry polar bear or an arctic fox; hunting rodents and swift as the wind.
Research facts and figures of climate, temperature, habitats and eco-systems and compose evocative poems about the Northern Lights.
Find out about the Titanic tragedy; the 'unsinkable ship' holed after hitting an iceberg.
So wrap up well everyone and settle by the fire. I'm just going outside and may be some time...….
