We are currently reading, 'Shackleton's Journey' and are learning all about Ernest Shackleton, his crew and their precarious expedition to Antarctica. We are working towards writing a non-chronological report about Antarctica.


'In August 1914, Ernest Shackleton and his brave crew set out to cross the frozen wastes of Antarctica, in what was to be the last expedition of the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration. Ahead of them lay unimaginable danger - ferocious seas, uncharted mountains, ice and snow. This is the true story of how Shackleton and his companions endured the hardships they faced, and ultimately managed to survive their perilous adventure.' 

Last half term we read, 'The Giant's Necklace' by Michael Morpurgo. Our writing outcomes for this unit were to write a diary entry in the view of the protagonist, Cherry, and to write a newspaper report of the events of that fateful day at Boat Cove.
