Early Years learn about Arctic and Climate Change as part of Environment topic

Young Preparatory School children have been learning more about the Antarctic as part of an ongoing topic.

The Early Years group at Rydal Penrhos took part in a host of activities during their final week before the half term break, which have been implemented as part of their studies on the environment, both regionally and globally.

Throughout the week the group investigated which animals live in the arctic and how they adjusted to the bitter climate over time, and they also got to find out more about climate change and the impact melting glaciers are having on the world we live in.

Expeditions to the area were also detailed, with the children learning what clothing is best to deal with the terrain, and they also spent some time painting polar bears and making their very own number rhyme revolving around penguins.

Deputy Head Alison Hind, said: “Our environment is constantly changing due to global warming, and it is essential that the next generation are fully aware of climate change and the significant implications that come with it.

“Our Early Years staff have also recognised this and provided a wonderful insight into life on the arctic, which is part of their hugely popular learning module on the environment.”
