We have been learning about Sir Ernest Shackleton and his trips to Antarctica, especially the trip when Endurance got crushed by pack ice.
Today we shared some of our first pieces of writing about this amazing voyage. We were imagining that we were a crew member and we were heading towards Antarctica, filled with excitement and nervousness and maybe feeling a bit seasick too in the big waves of the Southern Ocean.
We'll write a few more pieces about Shackleton, choose one each to publish, then post some of them for you to read.
In these photos are outside our classroom in the courtyard enjoying the afternoon sunshine, listening to each others stories and giving feedback.
Room 4 students love writing time!
