Today, Monday 29th October, we plunged into the freezing temperatures of Antarctica! We had a look at the camp that Ernest Shackleton would have stayed in and how he would have survived the wintry conditions. Some of us dressed up in fur coats to get into character. Next, we watched some of Frozen Planet and listened to David Attenborough's description of the landscape. We then compared how cold England is to the Antarctica by drawing line graphs to visualise the data. Finally, we spent the afternoon using atlases and globes locating Antarctica.
