Misty Mountains Sierra
We have been on an adventurous journey around the world discovering the world’s largest mountains including Mount Everest and Kilimanjaro. We have been using a range of maps, information books and websites to understand where the mountains are. Inspired by the magnificent mountains of the world, we completed graphs showing heights, looked at webcam and satellite images and created real life sketches. Using our literacy skills, we wrote mountain shaped poems and composed songs about the water cycle. We also examined how mountains are displayed on a map and built a water cycle to look at changing states of matter. At the end of the topic, we wrote our own adventure stories inspired by ‘The Hobbit’.
