On Tuesday, Year 3 wrapped up warm in their winter woollies for a fun-filled trip to the Snowdome in Tamworth.
The children had a truly wonderful time sliding down the slopes on snowtubes and sledges, pulling each other along on wooden toboggans, building snowmen and igloos, playing ‘Snowball Splat’ ,experiencing a ‘snow cabin’ and creating snow angels.
To experience such chilly temperatures made them feel like real polar explorers and, when their fingers and toes began to tingle a little, they discovered the importance of thermal and waterproof clothing.
To finish the day, they were fascinated to listen to a presentation by the “Ice Maidens”, all about their Trans-Antarctic expedition.
All of these experiences will inspire and support the children’s learning this term. What an exciting start to Year 3’s new Creative Curriculum theme, Ice Worlds!
