Yesterday we were beginning to think about Global Warming in relation to our Saving the World topic. We discussed how the atmosphere is getting thicker – meaning the heat from the sun is being trapped around our world. The children were very worried about the ice at the Arctic melting and what would happen to Father Christmas and the animals. We carried out a fair test to see whether the ice would melt quicker when wrapped in cling film (to trap the heat in) or not. We found out that the ice does melt quicker when the heat is trapped in. The children were able to relate this back to our planet and think about ways we can stop this from happening!
