Term 2: We have been exploring the book, Shackleton's Journey and The Ice Trap. We have followed the route which Shackleton and his men took to Elephant Island. We have been discussing whether Shackleton (and 5 of his crew) should risk leaving this inhospitable place to travel over 800 miles to South Georgia for help. In this lesson, we set up a conscience alley-whispering the reasons for and against leaving to help 'Shackleton' make up his mind!
Term 1 : We have been writing diaries from the viewpoint of Captain Nicholls, a character in WarHorse. We took part in some freeze-frames from different points in the book and thought about how the characters were feeling and how they would react to the events to help us prepare for writing the diaries.
In the summer, last year's Y6 came and collected questions which we wanted answered about being in Y6! They wrote us letters and we opened them on the first day in 6T. They reassured us and made us feel excited about the year ahead!
