BUDDING polar explorers have been making their own pint-sized igloo.

The reception class from Bishop Harland School, in Red House, used bottles from their school milk to craft the icy home.

The creation is now home to their polar bear mascot Snowy and has sparked their interest in learning more about the Arctic.

One of the igloo’s creators, Maddison Scott, five, said: “I’ve really liked learning about polar bears and how the ice is melting.

“We also learnt about Inuits and how they used to be called Eskimos.”

Emma O’Neill, early year foundation stage leader, said: “The children’s mascot got them interested in polar bears and winter weather, so we decided to link the two topics.

“Through the project they’ve learnt about recycling and saving the polar bears.”
