Our cross-curricular topic this term is geography focused. We will be exploring where Antarctica is, who lives there and what is there? In Geography we will be using globes, images, the Internet and non-fiction books to help our knowledge to answer these questions. In Literacy we will be using both non-fiction and fiction texts to develop our knowledge and use our literacy skills to write about Antarctica and who lives there. In Geography we will start off by finding out where Antarctica is and how this effects the weather that is there. We will also be deepening our knowledge of human and physical features of Antarctica (Year 2 did some work on human and physical features in year 1, so they will be exploring how this effects the lives of the people who live there). In Art we are going to be transforming our classroom into Antarctica by working on a larger scale, using different media and paint brushes.
