Exploring the Antarctic

Wednesday 31st January 

 

Today Year 5 were set the challenge of preparing for an Antarctic expedition.  They were given a budget of £6000 and had to spend it on food, clothing and equipment.  We thought about the different types of food needed, the essential and non essential items of equipment.  Some groups were very careful with their budget, who needs a toothbrush when you can use your fingers!  We used chrome books to complete our research and created spreadsheets to show our spending.  We even took turns working inside the tent.
