Year 4

This term our topic is Shackleton’s Journey and Antarctica. As part of our Literacy we will reading Shackleton’s Journey by William Gill. This is a true life journey about Shackleton’s monumental expedition to cross Antarctica. The book is split into little sections about every part of his journey, from the sinking of Endurance (Shackleton’s ship), to Patience Camp. The whole trip is explained in great detail which, together with the easy to read sections, makes the trip understandable and appealing.
