Frozen Kingdoms

This project teaches children about the characteristics and features of polar regions, including the North and South Poles, and includes a detailed exploration of the environmental factors that shape and influence them.

Art and Design


As part of our companion project, ‘Environmental Artists’, we have been researching different artists and the work they have produced. It has been really interesting to think about the message behind their art work and to think about why they used the materials that they chose. 


In Art and Design, we have been looking at the various recycled items that were brought in and investigating the best ways to join them. We looked at different tapes and glues, as well as other fastenings such as staples and treasury tags, before identifying which materials were best suited to which joining methods.

We had a great time creating our environmental art work with our adults! Thank you to all of the parents and carers for coming to help us and for saving up so much recycling! Look how amazing our corridor looks now!  



Today, we investigated blubber under the skin as a polar adaptation. As part of our research last week, we found that some polar animals have blubber under their skin to prevent their internal organs from getting too cold in the water/ice of the polar regions. Today we found out how that worked! We used vinyl gloves and lard to compare how long it took to feel cold water with and without a layer of blubber beneath the skin.
