Class 9 Shackleton's Journey Comic Strips

We drew comic strips showing the journey Shackleton, Crean and Worsley made across South Georgia to Stromness. Each group chose a problem the men encountered (crevasse, gully, glacier, mountain) and thought about how they might have crossed that challenge. We are really proud of our work and loved making our comic strips.

Class 9 Marching Songs - performances

As part of our work on Shackleton's Journey, in english lessons we have been writing marching songs to inspire the crew as they marched across the ice following the destruction of The Endurance. Those that wanted to, performed their pieces to be recorded. We had great fun writing these and hope you enjoy them!
