Touching The Antarctic!

This week we’ve been looking at the antarctic…
Alfie can now point out both the arctic and the antarctic on the map, and give basic differences – thanks be to David Attenborough and ‘Frozen Planet’, but also to his world sticker book…

We have been reading about penguins – both of these excellent books are full of factual information, however, the second one is a fictional story…

We filled our sensory box with salt and penguins, and Ted has been having a good play, with a the more basic polar animal book beside him….

Plus, ironically, on the back of our milk packet this week we have a little information about polar explorers..

..which includes a website (with english translation) ‘polarforskningsportalen.se’ about recent research and expeditions to both the north and south pole, including blogs by researchers, and some very interesting photographs… 👍😊
