Autumn 1


Who do you think you are? Are you an extrovert or an introvert, a singleton, a twin or even a triplet?

Let’s discover what makes you… you! From your fingerprints and footprints, genes and DNA, everything is unique to you. So why do you look just like Mum or Dad… or even Auntie Rose? Explore the world of human identity and how our unique features can be used to tell us apart from others or help to solve a crime!

Remember to love being you… Why? Because there’s only one you: you’re one of a kind!

Trek bravely and valiantly across the treacherous terrain to the ends of the Earth, treading deep in snow or be pulled by a team of mighty sled dogs.

Research facts and figures of climate, temperature, habitats and ecosystems, and compose evocative poems and writing about the Northern Lights.

So wrap up everyone and settle by the fire. I’m just going outside and may be sometime…
