Autumn Term 1 - Frozen Planet

In our topic lesson we were learning about Ernest Shackleton.  We then imaged we were a famous explorer.  Our friend then interviewed us in front of the class.  We enjoyed taking part in the drama and learning about famous explorers.  
In our computing lesson we were learning about programming.   We took it in turns to program our 'robot' partner using instruction cards.  We made them pick things up and move around the classroom.
In maths we were playing snakes and ladders, to earn the dice we had to answer questions related to our times tables.  We enjoyed making up the questions for each other and trying to beat them to the top.
Toucans have enjoyed exploring the outside canopy area.  We have been trying to make and igloo  and playing with ice animals.
We went to St Albans Cathedral and had a tour around.  We learned why people came to the cathedral.  We took part in a 'wedding' and learned why the cathedral was built and named St Albans.
To end our 'frozen planet' topic we had a visit from a Husky dog .  We learned about the features that helped the dog in the cold.  We also got to stroke the dog and have our photo with her.
On healthy hearts and mind day we played lots of different games, led by our amazing sports leaders.  We also had a lesson of Judo and enjoyed learning how to pin and escape from our partners.
