'From the seeds of hard work grows a tree of success'

Welcome to Year 6

 

Our topic this half term is …

Welcome to the planet’s coldest lands… Vast wilds and hostile territories – incredibly beautiful, yet often deadly. Take shelter from the elements or fall prey to icy winds and the deepest chill. Trek bravely and valiantly across treacherous terrain to the ends of the Earth, treading deep in snow or be pulled by a team of mighty sled dogs.
Be alert, for magnificent animals roam these lands, sometimes hungry or fresh for a fight. Perhaps a hungry polar bear or an arctic fox is hunting rodents, as swift as the wind!
Research facts and figures of climate, temperature, habitats and eco systems, and compose evocative poems about Northern Lights.
Become part of an Antarctic rescue team, braving the elements to rescue terrified passengers from a ship struck by a deadly berg that hides deep beneath the Antarctic Ocean.
So wrap up well everyone and settle by the fire. I’m just going outside and may be some time…

Our class novel is:

 

The Polar Bear Explorers Club
Stella Starflake Pearl lives with her explorer father, Felix, alongside her pet polar bear, Gruff, a menagerie of pygmy dinosaurs and her trusty unicorn, Magic. Ever since Stella was a small child, Felix has gone away on expeditions to faraway lands, and returned with fascinating curiosities and incredible tales. Stella has always enjoyed his stories, but now she’s ready to start having a few adventures of her own.
She finally convinces Felix to take her with him on his next journey, and the expedition duly embarks with its supplies of wolves, sleds, unicorns, iced gems and expedition-strength moustache wax. But once their ship
reaches the snowy Icelands, Stella and the other three junior explorers find themselves separated from the rest of their expedition.
Setting out together into the frozen unknown, they must keep all their wits about them if they are to come face-to-face with frost fairies, snow queens, outlaw hideouts, carnivorous cabbages – and live to tell the tale.
