Today, Year 4 discovered a large rucksack had been left in the Year 4 group room. We wondered where it had come from and who it belonged to. When we investigated further, we found that it was very heavy and full of equipment. On closer inspection we found winter clothes (which we tried on!) and discussed each item as it was drawn from the rucksack. A helmet, a pick axe… Mmm.. what could our theme be? Then some crampons and a long rope. Year 4 correctly deduced that this term we will be looking at mountains, covering what mountains are, how mountains are formed, where mountains are in the world and why there are different types of mountains. We will also be finding out what it would be like to climb a mountain, writing diaries and reports in our English classes. It promises to be an exciting term.
