Arctic Explorers Topic- January 2020
In Geography children will explore the Arctic Circle using a map and will be investigating the countries within the circle. They will be discovering the Arctic climate by describing the difference between summer and winter in the Arctic using weather icons.
Children will be identifying the physical features found in the Arctic and will be finding out which animals live in the Arctic and where they are found by using and reading maps. Children will be exploring different Arctic cities and the countries they are found in as well as comparing an Arctic town to a city in the UK.
In Science children will be grouping and identifying characteristics of Arctic animals. We will be exploring the habitat of the Arctic and how animals have adapted to their surroundings. We will conduct a scientific experiment looking at the purpose of blubber and children will also be investigating ice and its properties by making observations and recording ideas.
Children will be experimenting with an ‘iceberg’ to see how it floats and behaves in different conditions.
In History children discover the way the traditional Inuit lived over 1000 years ago and will be challenged to think about how the Inuit culture has changed over the years. They will then use key words to describe the Inuit culture and compare the past and present lifestyles.
In art we will be investigating the colours in Arctic landscapes. We will learn about the Aurora Borealis formations and using different art materials to recreate it. Finally we will be exploring Inuit sculptures and prints and describing the shapes and colours used in them.
During DT we will design, make, test and evaluate a model Inuit boat.
In PE we will be exploring Inuit dances and dance sequences and creating
dance moves for the Arctic animals studied.
Music In music we will be listening to Inuit throat singing and music and having a go ourselves!

Clay Faces in Woodland School
The way the sun, Earth and Moon move around in relation to each other gives us our day and night, our spring, summer, autumn and winter.
The Earth itself is tilted as it moves around the sun. The tilt is very important because it means at certain times of the year more of one part of the Earth is facing the sun than at other times. This tilt gives us our seasons.
In June the northern part of Earth is tilted towards the sun meaning we get the most hours of sunshine giving us short nights and the longest day of the year.
In September, the Earth has moved further around the sun and now the tilt means the sun is facing the middle of the Earth. The rays of sun are shining on the Northern and Southern parts of the Earth equally. This means we get about the same hours of day time and night time.
We call this time of year autumn, and the day of the year when we have the most equal day and night is September 23rd and is called the Autumnal Equinox.
After the Autumnal Equinox the tilt of the Earth means we get fewer of the sun’s rays shining on our part of the world each day. The days get shorter and the nights get longer all the way through to the shortest day of the year at the Winter Solstice in December.
Happy Autumn Equinox! Class 2 raise a toast to the first day of Autumn with a glass of freshly squeezed apple juice.
