Year 5 explore Shackleton’s Journey

In English, Year 5 began reading Shackleton’s Journey, the story of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s expedition to cross the Antarctic via the South Pole in 1914. We found out that 5,000 candidates applied to join a ship’s crew of just 26. To help him choose the best candidates for the role, we wrote some  questions and carried out an interview to decide whether Year 5 would be suited to the role!
