Summer 1 Learning Adventure - Ready, Steady, Grow!



Spring 1 Learning Adventure - Frozen

In Year R we explored Frozen Worlds. We learned about which animals live in the Arctic Circle. Our Learning Adventure began with a visit by Explorer Dome, where we experienced different environments. We really enjoyed the dry ice and how foggy the tent got. We also made the shadows of various animals and we used different clothes to camouflage and understand how animals camouflage themselves. We released animals trapped into ice by exploring different ways to see what works best and we had real, whole fish to explore with all of our senses. We didn't really like how they smelled though. Or how they feel when you touch them. Or their dead eyes. We didn't like much about them really. We also used computers to find out facts about these animals, their habitats and their dietary requirements. All of the above helped us to produce some amazing writing, words, captions and sentences. We used sugar cubes to build igloos and we made ice and used adjectives to describe how it feels. Lastly we helped Olaf to choose the best scarf to go to a party. We created several patterns and he chose the best.
