Explorers’ Day


This term our whole school curriculum topic is Explorers. To “kick-start” our topic, we had an Explorers’ Day. We invited the children to dress up as Explorers – some chose to be a famous explorer and others chose to be linked to transport and journeys. The children took part in a carousel of activities – where they travelled the world learning about different continents.

We also spoke about how an explorer would need the Sulivan school values of kindness, tolerance, resilience, fairness, co-operation and respect when exploring new places. We finished our whole school assembly with this extract of an exploration poem by Edgar Guest:

The things that haven’t been done before

Are the tasks worth while today;

Are you one of the flock that follows, or

Are you one that shall lead the way?

Are you one of the timid souls that quail

At the jeers of a doubting crew,

Or dare you, whether you win or fail,

Strike out for a goal that’s new?
