Year 6- Engage

Year 6 Engage- Frozen Kingdom

The topic for this half term in Year 6 is ‘Frozen Kingdom’, which involves learning all about the Polar Regions. As part of Engage week, the children learnt about the landscape of Antarctica, Ice Bergs and the animals who call Antarctica their home. They also learnt about the formation of icebergs, and observed a home-made mini Iceberg. The children thought carefully about how the iceberg changed over time and how adding salt affected the ice. To further their understanding about icebergs, Year 6 came up with their own questions they wanted to find out, and carried out research to find the answers from a range of non-fiction texts. Year 6 also learnt about the History of the Titanic ship, and the differences between classes on board the ship.
