Welcome to the planet’s coldest lands, which are incredibly beautiful, yet often deadly.
During the Spring term, we’ll be making and observing icebergs and finding out more about them.
We will be learning technical vocabulary in science and geography, and using globes and maps to locate the polar regions, comparing the Arctic (Spring 1) and Antarctic (Spring 2.)
We will also be considering how we can protect the polar environment.
During history sessions, we will investigate the tragic story of the RMS Titanic, and find out about the people on board.
Once we are more familiar with the polar regions, we’ll write some exciting stories, and diary entries from the perspective of brave explorers like Ernest Shackleton.
Researching our favourite polar animals will be fun. We will look at how they are adapted to suit their polar habitats.
Finally, we will learn about the inhabitants of these regions and create artwork inspired by the Inuit people.
Frozen Kingdoms (Spring 2)

In year 6, we will be preparing the Easter reflection about the Stations of the Cross, so it is very important to have a good understanding of the Easter story.
For homework, you will have to retell the Easter story. It is split up into 6 parts:
- Palm Sunday
- The Last Supper
- Praying at Gethsemane
- Carrying the Cross
- Crucifixion of Jesus
Write a short paragraph for each stage of the story and you could use pictures to illustrate the different parts of the story.
Take care over your handwriting and presentation.
