This half term, our key text was The Great Explorer by Chris Judge. We loved hearing about his incredible bravery on his adventure to rescue his dad from the North Pole. We used the text to help us to write our own explorer stories, thinking of different characters, places they would visit and dangers they might face.
We were very lucky to have Toad come to our class for a day to kindly help us with our own storytelling. We were very inspired by the stories that he told us and he gave us some great ideas for ours!
After our story unit, we learnt about Captain Robert Scott and his expeditions to Antarctica. We looked at lots of sources of historical evidence to investigate what happened to him and the reasons why. How many facts do you know about Captain Robert Scott?
