'Frozen Kingdom'

Welcome to the planet's coldest lands... vast wild's, hostile territories, incredibly beautiful yet often deadly. Take shelter from the elements or fall prey to icy winds and deepest chill. Trek bravely and valiantly across treacherous terrain to the ends of the Earth, treading deep in snow or pulled by a team of might sled dogs.

Be alert, for magnificent mammals roam these lands, sometimes hungry or fresh for a fight. Perhaps a hungry polar bear or an arctic fox; hunting rodents and sift as the wind!

Research facts and figures of climate, temperature, habitats and eco-systems and compose evocative poems about the Northern Lights.

Become part of an Antarctic rescue team, braving the elements to rescue terrified passengers from a ship struck by a deadly berg that hides deep beneath the Antarctic Ocean.

So wrap up well everyone and settle by the fire. I'm just going outside and may be some time... "

Girls' Football

Well done all involved!
