As approved crew members for the ‘Endurance Expedition’ with Sir Ernest Shackleton, we have been busy writing our diaries to record this incredible adventure. We are producing wonderful descriptive writing, rich with adjectives and descriptions of what it must have felt like whilst on this journey to Antarctica. We are realising how important our team skills are during our group task of building a polar region model. During IT, we have been working on producing our own fact files on a polar animal. One of the highlights of the last fortnight has certainly been Forest School when we pretended to be Polar Explorers and actually barbequed our own fresh pollock! A few of us were a bit unsure of tasting the final product but most of us said that it was most delicious!
On Wednesday we were privileged to have Mrs Kiran Gibbons visit and talk to us about Sikhism. We were intrigued to hear more about the Sikh beliefs and to find out about the gurdwara built by Mrs Gibbons’ grandfather!
