November had us learning all about Tom Crean and the North and South poles. We read the books “Tom Crean’s rabbit”, “The Emperor’s Egg” and “The Penguin who wanted to find out.”

We made a timeline of Tom Crean’s life, drew pictures of our favourite parts of Tom Crean’s rabbit, did experiments on how boats stay afloat and how polar bears stay warm in winter. We learned all about emperor penguins and the Waddell seals. We learned about the Inuit people and their culture and watched a classic short film “Nanook of the north” on how to make an igloo. We then made Inuit sunglasses, Igloos and looked at the work of Inuit artist “Kenojuak Ashevak”
