James Ketchell the Explorer - Jun 13, 2022


Today we were lucky enough to have a visit from a real life explorer, James Ketchell. James is a British adventurer. On the 1 February 2014, Ketchell became the first person to complete the triathlon of rowing across the Atlantic Ocean, summiting Mount Everest and cycling around the world. As part of his visit, James led an assembly telling us all about his expeditions and adventures. He then led some workshops where we were able to try on some of the clothes he recently used on his trip to Greenland, along with some of the food he eats. It was good for us it was chocolate cookie dough, which was actually delicious!
