Spring 1 Year A - Frozen Kingdom
Welcome to the planet's coldest land...vast wilds and hostile territories - incredibly beautiful, yet often deadly. Take shelter 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 being pulled by a team of mighty sled dogs.
Be alert, for magnificent mammals 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 ecosystems, and compose evocative poems about the Northern Lights.
Become part of an Antarctic rescue team, braving the elements to rescue terrified passengers from 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!

We really enjoyed gymnastics with Jill from Blackburn Rovers. Here are some little snips from our sequences.
