How would Wilf survive if the sea unicorn didn't come to his rescue?
The children were questioned at the beginning of the week about our story 'The Way Home for Wolf'. I asked them, how would Wilf survive if the sea unicorn didn't come to his rescue? The children used their prior knowledge of Shackleton's journey on the Endurance and thought about what resources they would have available to them. They decided a raft would be possible to build within the situation and with the equipment they would have.
So this is what we did...
We explored our outdoor environment and gathered all the natural things we needed. We then worked in groups to build and secure our rafts. The Kingfishers found this very tricky but with great perseverance, fantastic results were seen.
After they were all finished, we tested them out to make sure we would be able to float and survive in the polar regions. They all floated and blew about furiously in the winds. They were great to watch!
