This term we will be learning about hot and cold climates. We will be learning about where a meerkat lives (hot desert) and comparing it to where a polar bear lives (the Arctic). As we are learning about ourselves and different animals we will be looking at different animal groups and exploring how animals live in different habitats and how they are adapted for the different climates that they come from.
We received a very interesting parcel addressed to Year 1. Inside was a meerkat called Sunny who brought us the book 'Meerkat Mail' to read! We then enjoyed building our own meerkat habitats and we also wrote our own postcards to Sunny. Next we wrote postcards from Sunny to describe what did during his visit to our class. He even visited the school kitchen and Mr. McConnell's office! We are looking forward to finding out more about meerkats and making our own non-fiction books.
