Year 4 have been enjoying reading about Shackleton’s 1914 expedition to the Antarctic. As part of the learning process, the children have been writing letters to Shackleton to ask for a position on his boat as well as adverts selling the Polaris boat. Also look out for the letters home which children wrote, imagining it was sent the night before before the boat left civilization in Argentina to head south on the next leg of their adventure.

The children have loved reading the book Shackleton’s Journey so far and I am confident that they will be able to tell/teach you many things about this amazing expedition. Please enjoy looking at their super pieces of writing.
