Spring 1 Frozen Lands

Wednesday 7th January - Hook Day 

Today we started our topic with some Arctic adventures. We began the day by taking part in ‘Andy’s Wild Arctic Workout’ followed by hot chocolate in our sleeping bags. We watched David Attenborough’s Frozen Planet in the hall, which was a similar temperature to the Arctic 🥶 Then we started to make our own papier mache globe while talking about the Arctic, Antarctica, North Pole, South Pole and the equator. After lunch we drew a narwhal with Rob, they look amazing! We enjoyed some topic books from the library and to finish the day we made snowflakes and split pin polar bears for our igloo role play. 

We have talked about our work this half term ready for our celebration…watch this space! 🐻‍❄️ 


This half term the children have been learning about remembering. Part of this is learning about Shabbat. A weekly celebration for Jewish people that starts on a Friday at dusk and closes at sunset each Saturday. It is a day of rest when no work is done. This allows Jewish people to remember God as the creator of the universe and also God's commandment to keep the seventh day of the week holy. Shabbat is a special time when families get together. The children wanted to taste the Challah bread and grape juice that Jewish children traditionally eat and drink during Shabbat.
