Children from Brixington school had a visit from an Arctic explorer on Monday (December 1) as part of their focus on the polar regions.

Ben Collins gave an assembly to years one and two about what it is like to explore the polar extremes and the pupils even got the chance to hold a polar bear’s tooth.

“The kids really enjoyed it, they took it all in and some of them have been talking about polar bears and penguins all week,” said teacher Alice Winter.

The talk was part of the ‘here and now, all around the world’ topic the pupils are covering and the polar expedition assembly was the final piece of that.

Ben was at the school courtesy of the Education Through Expedition (ETE) programme based at Plymouth University, which gives students and researchers the chance to give school children an interactive experience and up-to-date knowledge of the Arctic.

ETE’s vision is to inspire children to explore the world around them.
