This term in Tundra Class, we have been learning all about Ernest Shackleton and his crews remarkable expedition to the Antarctic.

We have used the text to explore many different oracy and writing based outcomes, including role playing, hot seating and one of our favourites, Endurance themed poems- inspired by the name of the Discovery ship Ernest and his men used for their voyage.

Against all odds, and in the face of adversity, Ernest Shackleton used his impeccable leadership skills to survive and keep his crew safe whilst stranded for two years. A true testament to his heroism.
