Year 2 were very lucky to be able to Skype call Dr Jenny Hillman from the University of Helsinki about her recent trip to Antartica. The children have been learning lots about the North and South poles and in particular what life is like in Antartica. Dr Hillman was able to talk to the children about what life is like in Antartica and spoke about how her and her team dove under the ice to see the effects of global warming on animals on the sea floor. The children were fascinated to find out about the special dive suits that she needed to wear to keep warm in the -2 waters and how sometimes her hands would freeze and take 2 hours to thaw out after a dive! They also found out that whilst Dr Hillman was in Antartica there was no darkness - they found this very exciting, they thought this meant no bedtime!
