Welcome to the Summer term.
During this half term, we’ll find out where the highest mountains are, learn how to use a compass and make 3-D mountain models. Inspired by the magnificent mountains of the world, we’ll complete graphs showing heights, look at webcam and satellite images and create wonderful weavings. Using our literacy skills, we’ll write mountain-shaped poems and compose songs about the water cycle. We’ll also examine how mountains are displayed on a map, and build a water cycle to look at changing states of matter.
At the end of the project, we’ll write stories about the Yeti. Finally, we’ll think about our personal ‘mountains’. What are our goals and how will we achieve them?
