Spring 2017: Magnificent Mountains

Where should we go on holiday?

Year 5 will be soaring to the peaks with this exciting exploration of mountains around the world. 

Some of the questions we will be researching include:

Where can you locate key mountain ranges in the world?  How do we find mountains on OS maps?  How are different types of mountains formed?  What are mountain climates like?  Why do people visit mountains? How does tourism affect mountain regions?
