Our winter nature shelf has finally found it’s place….
This week we’ve been reading a bit about polar animals…
Ted described this as “a really fun aquarium” (!!!) …. 😂
When home we played with our tube of polar animals with real snow. Beside the tray I placed the polar animal book, and Ted carefully went through the different animals and what they were called, using both book and toys….
It’s an amazing factual story about how so many animals and birds make the journey to the North in the Spring, and 4 million miles home again in the autumn. Wonderful. 😊
Together with this book, Alfie and I completed ‘the Arctic’ in his world sticker book…
I think it’s important to point out that, despite what many children’s books and films present, in actual fact, polar bears and penguins do not live in the same place! This week we have been looking at the Arctic and it’s animals, next week we will look at the Antarctic.
Alfie and I have also been reading closely about polar bears through these books…
…both of which are excellent resources and tales about how the polar bear lives.
The film ‘The Little Polar Bear’ was a fun watch for Alfie and Ted, but for something more ‘real’ we’ll be watching Attenborough’s ‘Frozen Planet’. ❄️⛄️🌎
