Over the past few weeks P1/2 have been learning about explorers. They have found out about lots of famous explorers – from Captain Cook, Scott & Amundsen, Charles Darwin and Shackleton to Neil Armstrong, Edmund Hillary and Jacques Cousteau. They have tried to think about why these people explored where they did and how they went about it. They re-enacted Scott’s expedition to the South Pole in the school grounds and pretended to climb Mount Everest like Edmund Hillary. They have also been working in groups to plan their own expeditions.
