Some of the girls' worksheets they completed for their Polar project. We had out first look at similes and acrostics and a introduced the idea of an alliteration.
They also had fun with snowy watercolours, mazes, listening work, questions, a venn diagram, vocabulary and word searches, a Favourite Arctic Animal survey which they asked all their friends and a good look at Polar Bears (in captivity, their paws, food, fur, cubs etc)
We spent a whole morning learning about Emperor penguins in the Antarctic. They then dictated their own story to me about the life of a Mummy, Daddy and chick Emperor and we had immense fun using bean bags as penguin eggs and trying to pass the egg from 'Mummy's' feet to 'Daddy's' feet without dropping it on the ice. The girls spent the rest of the morning role playing with their cuddly penguins (I confess to having a huge and pointless collection of cuddly penguins. :)
