“Mercury class enjoyed their hook day for Land of Ice and Snow on their return to school in the New Year. They took part in a range of activities including an experiment to see if they could make their own snowflake salt crystals, igloo building out of sugar cubes and a blubber experiment using lard to help them understand how animals stay warm in the Polar regions.”
