This term, we are learning all about extreme explorers. Each week we learn about a different explorer from history, and discuss the different parts of the world they are from or have explored. We have add each explorer to a timeline. Here is our timeline so far:

Job 1: Explorer skills.

Look at the timeline. Can you remember any facts about each explorer? What explorer skills did we learn from each of them?

For example, we developed our history skills when learning about Guy Fawkes. Knowing about different events and locations in history is an important explorer skill. If we ever explore London we will know all about the Houses of Parliament and what happened there in the past.

Can you list two more explorer skills that we have learnt or developed so far?

Job 2: Oceans of the world.

Today, we are going to learn about different oceans of the world. Watch the video below.

Can you label the oceans of the world on the map?

Use the map diagram to help you:

Job 3: Around the world voyage.

Ellen MacArthur is an English yachtswoman and an ocean explorer. In 2005, she set a world record for the fastest, solo, non stop voyage around the world. Watch the video below to see footage from her ocean adventure.

Ellen would have used many explorer skills during her voyage, such as map skills, navigation skills and sailing skills. A voyage is a long journey involving travel by sea.

Can you draw a voyage from one place to another on your map? Where would you sail to? Which countries would you visit on the way? Which oceans would you travel across? Would you visit any continents?

Draw a boat at your starting point and a flag at the end point of your voyage.

Challenge: Write sentences or key words that describe your voyage. You can do this by writing a short paragraph or labelling the map.

Here is Miss O’Keeffe’s example:

Miss O’Keeffe would begin her voyage in the United Kingdom. She would sail across the Atlantic Ocean to South America. Here, she would visit the country of Brazil. Miss O’Keeffe would then sail across the Atlantic Ocean towards the Southern Ocean. She would then end the voyage on the continent Antarctica.
