Exploring the Arctic in Our New Igloo

Exploring the Arctic in Our New Igloo

This term we have seen a new addition to our book corner - a reading haven, Arctic Cave. This snowy bubble is the perfect place for pupils to explore the wondrous adventures of the Arctic, learning about renowned expeditions and the varied wildlife that call this icy landscape their home. 
 
The Arctic Cave is in keeping with our topic for this term, where we come together as a school and explore a theme. What better way to accompany these chilly winter months than to direct our attention to life in the Arctic? So far we have learnt about intrepid explorers such as Sir Ranulph Fiennes who has made numerous exhibitions to both the South and North Poles. Sadly our investigations have revealed the plight of the endangered animals of the Tundra, therefore our Eco Team are planning ways to enlighten others about the gradual disappearance of the Polar Bear and Arctic Fox. 
 
Head of Moreton First Catherine Ford commented: "Curled up in our own Moreton First Arctic Cave is a great place to read about this giant, white, frozen region which plays an important role in keeping our global climate stable."
 
We are thrilled that Dave Pickles, a local mountaineer and Arctic explorer will spend the morning with us on Friday 10th February for a morning of Arctic fun!
