January UPDATE

We have received a letter all the way from the Antarctic!  A very kind lady called Theresa who is a Dive Officer in Rothera has written to the children answering all their questions.  We also received an email from her which had a photo of Theresa holding the letters from the children.

JANUARY 2018

 

We have received a reply from the British Antarctic Survey after they received our letters.  We are really excited to find out that one of our books of letters has actually been sent to Rothera!  They very kindly sent us an information pack and all the children a bookmark.

We have managed to fit a whole continent in a box!

The children have been using reasoning to help them understand and explain some division problems.  They needed to build penguin enclosures (squares) using matchsticks.

Building Penguin Enclosures.

The children have been inspired to create some digital art of some of the videos and images that Mrs Carlile has been sent of the Antarctic.  These were sent by Lee Thomas who was working in the Norwegian Research Station in Troll in the Antarctic.  Lee has taken some amazing photos using his drone.

Lee stood on top of a huge mound of rocks in the Antarctic.

The children designed Lee on top of the mound of rocks in the Antarctic. Mrs Carlile was impressed with their use of different tools to create texture and depth to the picture.

The children have drawn some amazing images of Emperor Penguins which live in the Antarctica. These images are going to be sent along with some letters to various Research Stations in the Antarctica.
