Our Finnish Friend Gunnar

Posted by brakefieldm on Friday Nov 11, 2016 Under Uncategorized

This week we have been finding out all about a little boy from Lapland in Finland called Gunnar. In our first week back we wrote a letter to Gunnar and his family, asking them all about their life in the arctic. Amazingly, this week we had a reply and we found out lots of information about them.

Next week we will be creating some ‘published’ pieces of writing about Gunnar’s life in Lapland, so watch this space.

If you are very lucky, you can sometimes see the Northern Lights from Lapland.

Blog Challenge: What interesting facts did you learn about Gunnar and his family this week?

    I found out that they eat reindeer, berries and lots of fish. Berries keep them healthy because not many things grow in Lapland.

    Sometimes Gunnar plays in the snow but if it is too cold then he plays board games instead.

    Well done, Amber and Millie! Yes, people in Lapland do eat very different things to us. Also, it does get very cold in the Winter, and temperatures can fall to as low as -50 degrees celsius. Brrr…
