Misty Mountain Winding River
Mighty mountains rise above the morning mists, imposing and eternal. During this half term, we’re going up in the world to look at mountain tops and follow the journey of a river back down. We’ll use a range of maps, information books and websites to research and discover. 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 informative texts. We’ll also examine how mountains are displayed on a map, and build a water cycle to look at changing states of matter.
Viola lessons will take place every Thursday afternoon.
Year 3 swimming will continue on a Tuesday afternoon.
