Year 5 Autumn Term (2)

Extreme Earth - Autumn 2
Welcome to the planet’s coldest lands. Vast wilds and hostile territories; incredibly beautiful, yet often deadly. 

This half term, in our geography lessons, we will be investigating polar regions. We will learn about climates, biomes and environments and understand how people and animals have adapted to living in such extreme climates.


We will also look at how humans have interacted with the polar regions, linking this with our English work in our reading and writing. As part of the Hook lesson the children will follow the map of the school and go on a treasure hunt to find pictures of the animals from the polar regions. 


How can you help?

This half term, we’re going to learn about the coldest places on Earth. Why not watch a documentary such as the BBC Frozen Planet series together? You could also freeze pieces of fruit with fruit juice in lolly moulds, to create frozen treats with a hidden surprise. Alternatively, work together to create a snowy collage.
