Reception Geographers and Scientists

This week in Topic the Reception children have been exploring geography and science themes with our focus on Polar Regions.

We have explored new vocabulary and the children have been brilliant explaining this new vocabulary. We have begun to explore the similarities and differences between the Arctic and Antarctic. We even visited the school library to find books about the polar regions and maps of the world.

Ask your children to share what they have learned.

Some of the questions we have been exploring:

-What is the climate like in the polar regions?

-Why can we not see the Arctic on a map?

-Where is the coldest place on Earth?

-Which animals like to live where it is cold?

-How do they keep warm?
