Year 3 spring term survival of the fittest

Year 3 began their "Survival of the Fittest" theme with a survival day with Phil Lowde. They built a base camp, a camp fire and shelters and learnt how to survive outside. They then learnt about life in Antarctica and read a variety of non-fiction books and biographies about survivalists and explorers. They wrote fact files and reports about explorers before reading Lost And Found by Oliver Jeffers. They based their own stories on this book. In science they learnt about magnets and forces, as well as how different animals are adapted to live in different places.
