In Year 5 today, we have been studying Ernest Shackleton's journey from England to South Georgia, focusing on the challenges he faced as he crossed the tropics.

As we learned about Shackleton's journey in Year 5, we were struck by his determination and resilience in the face of adversity. His journey through the tropics was just one of many challenges he faced, but it was a crucial part of his journey that helped him to build the skills and resilience he would need to complete his mission.

We have gained a greater appreciation for the challenges he faced as he crossed the tropics and the skills he needed to overcome them. Shackleton's story is a powerful reminder of the human spirit's resilience and our ability to overcome even the most difficult challenges.
