    Hi Nonie, Just watched the first video clip. Hope the first few days have been terrific. Jen wants to know if the ice melt is as bad as some of the images we see on TV. Seb asks what is the daytime/nighttime temperature? Has it snowed? (Sarah) other key questions: Sarh wants to know if there any polar bears. Gabs says – any eskimoes? Lydia asks what the food is like (typical!) Have you seen the aurora borealis (Lydia) Are you still dreaming about the T4 presenter? (Sarah) Everyone sends love! Missing you……..
    You have a topic test on Saturday 10.30 our time – rivers summary test. You missed the fieldtrip – very exciting! Down to the river at Wimborne. Jen says she will send you the test! Gabs says you are going to miss the best disco ever (saturday week) She also says….. (you’ll have to ask her yourself)
    Good luck for the next few days. We look forward to seeing you on the video cast after the w/e.
    Mr R and Geog Gp5

    Questions from the Firs Team (Andy, B Barny and Me) Tom is at Uni now.

    Whats the coldest you have been out in?
    Is it very windy all the time?
    Have you seen a polar bear yet?
    On watch – how long are the watches and what are you looking out for – ships or icebergs or both?
    Does the water look glacial i.e. turquoise?

    We are sending lots of support and hope you’re having a great time even if its hard workl
