Year 1 Polar Explorer Visit

As part of their Polar Explorers topic, Year 1 received a visit from polar explorer, Bjorn Hapstrom (who some children commented, looked a lot like our Year 5 teacher, Mr Clarke!). He came to speak to the children about his exploration in the Arctic and Antarctic. He described the clothes he wore, the animals he encountered, and even recounted his battle with a polar bear, showing us his sword to prove it! The children asked many questions and were particularly interested in learning about the animals and whether he met any native people. The children thoroughly enjoyed Mr Hapstrom’s visit and are now working hard to write him a thank you letter. We hope he will visit us again after his next adventure in the jungle…
