Polar Explorers

Alan came to visit us and we took part in a polar explorer workshop. He taught us all about what happens to your body when you go to cold places on Earth. He showed us some videos of some teachers training so they could go to the Antarctic. 

We monitored our heart rates in normal temperatures and when in colder temperatures - some of us had to get into a freezing cold ice bath!!!


To see more pictures of the workshop, check out your child's FreeFlow account.

Hit the Surf

 Year 5 had the opportunity to go to Seaburn beach and take part in the 'Hit the Surf' programme with the RNLI lifeguards.

Although we got wet, we had a fantastic day and will remember it for a long time. 

Here are some of the words we used to describe our day:

terrifying, fun, breath-taking, adventurous, undescribable, unforgettable, wonderful, brilliant.
