LEARNING to make a difference

Autumn 1

 Our First Topic: Why Can't a Meerkat live at the North Pole? 


We have read 'Meerkat Mail' by Emily Gravett, the story is all about Sunny the Meerkat who lives in the Kalahari Desert.




We have learnt lots about what it is like to live in the desert, and what it would be like to live in the North Pole. We even packed our suitcases for a holiday to each place, making sure we chose the right clothing for the weather! 


Why not ask your child....

- Where does Sunny the meerkat live? 

- Where did Sunny visit when he wanted a new home?

- Can you describe the desert?

- What is an author?

- What things would you need to take to visit the North Pole/Desert?

- Would you rather live in the North Pole or the Desert?
