This term we are learning all about cold places. We have been making lots of snowy pictures and thinking about what it would be like to live in a cold place.
We got a letter from Elsa! She asked us if we could make her a Frozen Palace! We had great fun decorating our home corner and making it look icy. Come in and have a look if you haven't seen it already.
Elsa sent us some presents this week. Firstly she sent us some ice to play with. We had great fun seeing what it felt like and watching it melt. The next day she had a problem because she had frozen her jewels in the ice by mistake and needed our help to get it out. We had some great ideas and tried putting the ice on the radiator or pouring warm water on it to melt it. We managed to get all the jewels out! To say thank you for helping her on Wednesday she sent us some coloured ice and we made ice palaces with it. We also tried pouring salt and warm water on the ice. It made fantastic shapes and patterns in the ice.
This week Chilly The Penguin came to visit so we found out all about Penguins. We learnt that he came from the South Pole. We made him fish to eat, made him a cold place to lie in and drew him pictures. We took very good care of him!
This week Snowy the Polar Bear has come to visit and brought some of his friends too! We have been learning all about Polar bears. We found out that they have black skin and white fur. We also found out that they come from the Arctic which is at the top of the world.
