Our theme for January was ‘The Polar Regions’. The children really enjoyed learning about the Arctic and Antarctic and about the weather and the animals which live there. We also studied Tom Crean and learned all about his exciting and brave expeditions to the Antarctic. They played with ‘snow’, built some lovely igloos and ships in our construction area, wrote all about penguins and polar bears in our writing area. In our creative area they made some lovely polar bear pictures with chalk, and designed some cosy hats and gloves for the cold weather! In the socio-dramatic area the children had great fun pretending to be brave explorers and scientists in the Antarctic.
