Misty Mountain Sierra

Mighty mountains rise above the morning mists, imposing and eternal.
During this half term, we’re going up in the world. 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. Using our literacy skills, we’ll write mountain-shaped poems. 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.

The Mighty Mayans

Bienvenido a Mexico!
We’re going to explore this unique country, from its towering temples to its fun-packed festivals. During this half term, we’ll watch a traditional Mexican performance and join in with percussion instruments. Using our literacy skills, we’ll write about Las Dias de los Muertos and create an invitation to a Mexican food tasting session. In preparation, we’ll make delicious drinks and savoury dishes. We’ll learn about the ‘Day of the Dead’ and create 3-D skull masks. We’ll be playing an acient mayan game of pok writing postcards and clear instructions for a game. Using maps, we’ll locate Mexico and explore its natural features. We’ll discover what daily life is like and how it has changed over time.
