Shackleton Workshop takes Year 5 on an Antarctic journey…

As part of the topic ‘Ice Worlds’, Year 5 spent Monday recreating Shackleton’s expedition to the Antarctic with actors from the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre in Guildford.

The children travelled on the SS Endurance to the Antarctic, but were trapped in the ice. When the ice destroyed the ship, the crew were stranded on Elephant Island. Against all the odds, Shackleton rescued his men and brought them safely home. It is an incredible story.

Year 5 threw themselves enthusiastically into the drama.
