Topic 'winter' - Wednesday 20th January  


Do you recognise these animals?

Emperor Penguin Colony Experiences “Catastrophic Breeding Failure” - Yale  E360

 Yes that's right, they are penguins. 

So far in our topic of winter, we have learnt how to keep ourselves wrapped up warm for winter weather like snow and frost, we have learnt about the northern lights and winter in different countries and we have found out about a place called the Arctic and who lives there. 

Just like the north pole on top of the earth which is called the Arctic, on the bottom of earth there is a south pole. This is called the Antarctic. Temperatures at the Antarctic can be less than -90°C
