Answers for our questions for Matt, Chief Officer on board the polar research ship RRS Sir David Attenborough

Mrs Proctor's friend Matt, who works as Chief Officer, replied to our email just as he was arriving into Antarctica this week! What an amazing opportunity for us to ask him questions about our topic on the South Pole. He replied with answers to each question and will send us more photographs of his trip there.

We have learnt to retell the story of "Lost and Found" so we can innovate it to write our own versions. This story will use expanded noun phrases and adverbials of time. We can't wait to write them!
