KS1 were ecstatic to see a thick flurry of snow falling from the sky, for the first time in two years! We decided that this was a fantastic opportunity to link our learning to Shackleton’s Expedition to Antarctica and we couldn’t miss it!
Children were collecting snow, making snowballs, running with their tongues out and thoroughly enjoying the experience! The children were saying how ‘freezing cold’ it was and how they might need their fingers amputated. We explained to the children how much colder it is in Antarctica and that Shackleton and his crew didn’t have radiators or heating to warm and dry their bodies and clothes – they were horrified!
