'Leap into Learning' Topic Launch Day - Pole to Pole
The year one learners transformed into Arctic Animals and Explorers for their Topic Launch Day. The learners saved the frozen Arctic Animals by melting the ice using warm water.
Next, we received a letter from an Arctic Explorer. He needed some help building a shelter to protect him from the cold, arctic conditions. The learners designed and built shelters for the Explorer to try out, we even made it snow!
In the afternoon the learners created 'Igloo Art' using sponges to print the blocks of the igloo, then we produced a whole class igloo using tissue paper.
Finally, everyone created their own beautiful snowflake. What a fantastic day we had!
