A surprise visit from Ernest Shackleton!

A time machine brought Ernest Shackleton to Year One this afternoon to tell children all about his explorations.  Children learnt about his ship,  Endurance, the 28 sailors and scientists that went with him, including a ship cat called Mrs Chippy!  The children learnt how Ernest Shackleton's determination meant that even when faced with disaster, he ensured all his men returned safely to England.
