Shackleton’s Journey

In Year 6 we are now studying the life of Ernest Shackleton and his famous polar expeditions – we have used the story of ‘Shackleton’s Journey’ as the stimulus for much of this work.

We have also watched ‘Icons’, a new history series profiling great people from seven different fields of human endeavour and that asks the public to vote for your favourites. This includes four outstanding leaders, explorers, scientists, entertainers, activists, sports stars, and artists & writers will battle it out to be chosen by you as the greatest person of the 20th century. You can explore the site to find out more about the series, who the icons are and the celebrity advocates who are celebrating their achievements.

Shackleton has been voted by the public as the greatest explorer of the twentieth century by the viewers of Icons!
