Year 5 were very fortunate to be able to Skype with adventure cameraman Keith Partridge this week. Keith has worked with many different organisations over the years including the BBC but in 2012 he completed a very special mission to Mount Everest. Keith, along with mountaineer Kenton Cool, fulfilled an 88 year old promise by delivering an Olympic gold medal to the highest point on earth. He was then asked by Sebastian Coe to be an Olympic torch bearer.
Keith took time out of his very busy schedule to talk to Year 5 about his expedition and the time he spent on Mount Everest. They also took part in a question and answer session.
Y5 Moonstone and Y5 Tangerine children will be blogging about some of the insights Keith shared with them over the coming days. Be sure to check out their class blogs!
