Today, Primary 3 went on a trip to Dunblane Library. We met Angela who welcomed us and got us started with a story called ‘Poles Apart’. Everybody knows that penguins belong at the South Pole and polar bears live at the North Pole – but in this story a family of penguins got lost, and found themselves at the wrong pole! They needed the polar bear to help guide them home.
We had to use our knowledge of the Arctic and the Antarctic to decide which animals lived in the North or South Pole. We already knew where some of the animals lived but we learned some new ones too.
Angela had looked out a selection of fiction and non-fiction books linked to our context ‘Poles Apart’. We had some time to explore the different books and choose which ones we wanted to bring back to school.
We finished our library session with a story about an explorer. We had a super time and learned lots from Angela about the library.
