Christmas Ice-skating fun!

Learning in English this Term
In English we have been learning about the great Antarctic adventures of the famous explorer Ernest Shackleton. We have been reading the text, Ice Trap! which tells of Shackleton's incredible expedition alongside his crew of strong and resilient men who stood loyal to him until the end!
Shackleton's Antarctic Adventure
Ernest Shackleton is widely regarded as a shining light for his exceptional leadership in the face of adversity. We will place students into the thick of his Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition, 1914--17. This hangout will feature Professor Chris Turney and will require students to help Shackleton and his crew escape near certain death.
http://www.shackleton100.com A video biography of Sir Ernest Shackleton Sir Ernest Henry Shackleton, CVO, OBE FRGS (/ˈʃækəltən/; 15 February 1874 - 5 January 1922) was a polar explorer who led three British expeditions to the Antarctic, and one of the principal figures of the period known as the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration.
THE GREAT ADVENTURERS - ERNEST SHACKLETON - TO THE END OF THE EARTH
For many Ernest Shackleton is the epitome of a courageous, resolute and determined adventurer, showing tenacity in the harshest of conditions. Like many explorers, Shackleton was drawn to the barren wastelands of the Antarctic, and to the honours, fame and fortune that would come from being the first person to reach the South Pole.
