After a well deserved rest, the Snow Leopards and Jaguars hit the ground running on Monday and got straight into our new topic - Frozen Kingdom. We will be learning about all kinds of exciting aspects of life in the northern and southern-most points of our planet - the Actic and Antarctic.

To get the ball rolling, we learnt some of the words the Inuit people use for ice (see below) and undertook an experiment to consider the varying rates of ice melt experienced in these regions. See below for photos of this interesting experiment!

In English, we have started looking at the fantastic The Call of the Wild by Jack London. Set in the Arctic, this book will provide us with inspiration for our writing over the coming weeks.

Finally, The Friday Celebration Assembly was an especially exciting one for Year 6 and our first batch of prefects were awarded with their certificates and badges. Well done to them - they will be taking on their new responsibilities around the school before too long.



Ask your child to explain what is happening in this experiment!
