Welcome to Year 6
Fasten your seatbelts for a fantastic rollercoaster ride through Year 6!
First stop: The Poles and a discovery of the explorations of Shackleton. Hold onto your hats as we dive into the trenches for World War I.
Y6 are following explorer Ben Saunders's blog as part of their Antarctica topic. There was great excitement today as he answered some of their questions all the way from Antarctica. https://bensaunders.com/into-82/
Ben is attempting to make the first solo, unsupported and unassisted crossing of Antarctica. This west-to-east traverse from Berkner Island to the Ross Ice Shelf via the South Pole was planned by Ben’s friend Lt Col Henry Worsley, who nearly completed the expedition before falling ill and passing away in hospital in Chile in January 2016.
The journey remains unfinished.
