Good morning Oak Class! I hope you’re all ok!


Day 4 – Thursday

BBC website –

Find English for today’s lesson 11th June.

LI – to learn about features and writing.


Remember, when following links online, parents should monitor that children are remaining on that page only and are keeping safe online.


LI – to write a narrative voice over.

Task 1. Explore Ernest Shackleton and one of the most remarkable survival stories of  all time by reading (page 5 Ernie’s Endurance to the end of Trial 8 on page 7) of Science of Survival: Ouch! Extreme Feats of Human Endurance by Georgina Phillips here: https://www.lovereading cience-Of-Survival-Ouch- Extreme-Feats-of- Human-Endurance-by- Georgina-Phillips.html (You will need to become a member of LoveReading4Kids. Membership is free).

Further information about Ernest Shackleton can be found here Britannica Kids – Ernest Shackleton: m/students/article/Ernest-Shackleton/336260

Task 2. Now watch and enjoy a short video clip based on Shackleton’s 1914 expedition by Google searching National Geographic Shackleton’s Journey. The video clip lasts 2 minutes 20 seconds.

Task 3. After watching, create a narrative (or voice-over) which could accompany this clip.

You may wish to do this as:

  • The Story of Shackleton’s Endurance Expedition – write a story of the expedition which can be read alongside the clip.


  • Imagining the clip is for a film trailer, create the voice over advertising the film to be released in the cinema.

Once you have written the script, have a go at reading it over the clip – making sure it fits in the time and you get all your information across to your viewer and listener.
