Children in Year 2 & Year 3 were inspired and excited when they met our Polar Explorer friend Antony Jinman. Everyone was so pleased that Antony had returned safely following his recent expedition to Antarctica.
The children loved every minute with Antony and they continued to ask great questions which Antony kindly answered. Thank you Antony!
We look forward to working with you and the Education through Explorers team soon.

We are delighted to be working with Polar Explorer Antony Jinman and Explorers through Education Live. Antony journeyed to Antarctica on December 26th 2015. The children at Millbrook have been having great fun asking Antony all sorts of questions about his experience via the ETE Live Learning portal. Antony and his team of experts have been busy answering the children’s questions all the way from Antarctica. This has been a fantastic way to bring learning to life. We can’t wait to welcome Antony back to the UK and to Millbrook to find out more about his expedition and what life is like in the polar regions. Safe journey home Antony!
