Mountain Range Sierra

Misty Mountain Sierra

During this half term, we’re going up in the world!

In the classroom, we’ll use a range of maps, information books and websites to write a recount of our visit.

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.

Finally, we’ll think about our personal ‘mountains’.

What are our goals and how will we achieve them?

Learning log - our topic this term is ‘Misty Mountain Sierra’. We would like pupils to choose a task from the list to complete each week as their homework. We have included some fun facts on the other side of the sheet to help generate some interesting discussions at home.
