This morning we were lucky to have a real explorer visit our school.
His name was John Dunn and he was here to tell us about the journey he made in the Arctic circle to Ellesmere Island. He travelled with his friend Clive by foot and they carried all the equipment they needed with them. They had enough food for 55 days but they were able to travel 750 km in only 50 days. John showed us many beautiful pictures of his journey and explained how they made the trip and about all the animals that he saw including Musk Ox, Wolves, Arctic Hares and he even told us about Polar Bears! It doesn’t sound like the kind of holiday that I would like to take- but the pictures were amazing 🙂
It was a very interesting presentation and I am proud at how well behaved our class was.
