Geography teacher Phil Avery will be bringing learning to life with his exclusive Antarctic ‘Teaching on Ice’ blog, launching on Teaching Expertise 16th March.

We’ll be following Phil’s progress as he prepares to embark on an exciting and challenging journey, celebrating the 50th anniversary of Sir Vivian Fuchs’ trans-Antarctic crossing.

Phil will be writing about his experiences on the Teaching on Ice blog, where you’ll be able to ask questions and exchange comments. We will also publish Phil’s teaching ideas and lesson plans, for you to download and use in the classroom.

As well as a blog, Phil will be  recording a regular podcast for you to listen to, along with regular video clips. Phil has already started his preparation, and in his first post he’ll be telling readers how close he and the three other teachers taking part in the expedition came to death!  Last Wednesday Phil hosted a talk by Peter Fuchs, trustee of the Fuchs Foundations -– and the son of Sir Vivian Fuchs – at Oxted School.  Teaching Expertise was there to support Phil in his fundraising efforts and to record interviews with Phil and Peter.
