Today, year 3 became intrepid geographers and completed a lot of research about the world’s tallest mountains. We found out the tallest peaks in each continent and then used the Chromebooks, atlases and other non-fiction books to discover as much as we could about these giant summits: Everest, Aconcagua, Denali, Kilimanjaro, Jaya Peak, Vinson Massif and Mont Blanc.
In the afternoon, we learnt about the tallest mountains in the UK and again, completed lots of research ready to create amazing factfiles about these, slightly smaller giants: Ben Nevis, Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Slieve Donard.
I learnt that Kilimanjaro is the tallest mountain in Africa. The first man to climb the mountain was in 1889.Zayd
