Thor the Walrus

Thor the Walrus at Scarborough

When we were learning about the importance of New Year around the world, and looking at the spectacular firework display in London, we found out that one firework display had been cancelled for very unusual reasons. Scarborough Council had cancelled their annual display because an arctic walrus had arrived on their beach and the council worried that the noise of a firework display would distress the walrus. We talked about the reasons this walrus could have become lost and we looked at the world map to see how far he had to go before he could be home. 
The children decided to write to Scarborough Council to thank them for cancelling the fireworks. They really hope Thor finds his way home soon.
