Last week some of our children in Years 2 and 4 at Bourne Westfield Primary Academy had an opportunity to speak to a real life Arctic explorer!

The children used their scientific knowledge of the topic to come up with a range of interesting questions to ask him. The interview was carried out over Skype live from the Arctic.

The children learnt that the explorers are researching if there has been a reduction in numbers of some of the marine wildlife. They also learnt that the explorers are currently basking in a glorious -8ºc.

Headteacher, Elaine Radley commented: “It was a fantastic opportunity for children to speak to explorers live from the arctic as part of Catlin’s Frozen Oceans Live event. Thank you to Mr Pepper, one of our parents who works for Catlin, and shared the link for this amazing opportunity.”
