Autumn Curriculum Vehicle

Learning in the Autumn Term 


This term our Learning Vehicles is: It's Snow Laughing Matter!


We will be learning all about the polar regions of our planet and the effects of climate change. We will be looking at the poles as habitats and how plants and animals have adapted to the extreme environment.  We will also be looking back in time to the Titanic and what happened when it hit the iceberg!


For our showcase, we will become real-life journalists, working alongside Stafford Newsletter (local newspaper) to produce a pull-out section for an edition of the paper. The pull-out will focus on life in the Arctic/Antarctic and the dangers to the regions of climate change.


In October we had a fantastic online meeting with Dr Natalie Taylor - she was one of the Ice Maidens.The Ice Maiden expedition was a British Army expedition in which six women from the United Kingdom became the first female team to ski across the Antarctic continent using muscle power alone. The Ice Maidens were also the largest team to ski across the continent. The 1,704 km expedition began on 20 November 2017 and finished on 20 January 2018, lasting 62 days. It was really interesting and inspiring to listen to her amazing adventures.
