Geoff Somers Visit

On Monday 16th December, Years 2 and 5 were lucky enough to have a real life polar explorer come and chat to them about his time in the Antarctic.  This was an amazing experience for all the children who have been learning about Antarctica in Year 2 and Shackleton in Year 5, who has lived in Antarctica and undertaken numerous expeditions, brought in some of the equipment he has used in Antarctica and gave the children chance to see just what is needed to survive in the hostile environment they had been learning about.

Year 5 were particularly excited to see some of the replica equipment Geoff had from his replica Shackleton and Scott expedition.  Children dressed up in the same equipment Shackleton himself would have used, right down to a reindeer skin sleeping bag.
