Year 6 Literacy: Ice Trap

In Literacy Year 6 have been reading the book ‘Ice Trap! Shackleton's Incredible Expedition’. This is the story of the epic journey made across the Antarctic ice pack by Sir Ernest Shackleton and his crew of twenty-seven men in 1914. The story teaches us much about heroism, leadership and loyalty. Year 6 pupils have written diaries, newspaper reports, poems, descriptions, non-chronological reports, biographies and story endings based on his incredible voyage.
