Earlier this week, Dr Peter Clarkson, Antarctic explorer and geologist, talked to our Year 4 pupils about Antarctica. Year 4 are currently learning about 'Weather and Climate' in Geography and Dr Clarkson's talk was very insightful. He showed the children some spectular pictures and spoke about the dangers of travelling on a sledge pulled by nine husky dogs! He then showed them the types of clothes necessary to survive in such cold and windy conditions and some of the children tried on the huge padded hats, coats, boots and trousers.
