We really loved this topic. We began by finding out the big differences and similarities between the Arctic and Antarctica. We located them on our world map and looked in more detail at the geographical aspects of the South and North Pole. We then carried out some research into the animals found in each pole and compared to those found in and around the UK.
Mr Devine came into visit us with a wealth of knowledge, facts and first hand experience of exploring the Arctic. He let us all have a go at trying on his explorers kit. We were very surprised at the weight of his boots. He shared some fascinating photographs which inspired us to write own adventure stories set in the Arctic.
