In history we have been learning about significant people. We have learnt about Ann Daniels who was the first woman to walk to both the North and South Poles. One her expedition the weather was cold, windy and the conditions were difficult. At one point Ann and her team mates couldn’t put their tent up because of the wind so they huddled together under it. We tried to experience what this would have been like by all getting under a parachute. It was hot! We thought about how Ann would have felt and what kept them going to achieve their goal. We have written a letter to her and are waiting for a reply.
It was good learning about Ann today because it is International Women’s Day and she has made the Guinness Book of Records for her achievement!
