This photographer is actually standing on lava to take his photos of an eruption. If you could ask him any question, what would it be?
Imagine you have jut reached the summit of Mount Everest. Can you write a diary entry about your thoughts and feelings? What difficulties would you have had to overcome? What conditions did you have to face? How do you think you might be feeling? What might your hopes for the future be? Every person that posts an appropriate diary entry before Friday night will receive two signatures.
I have been referred to as “probably the busiest mountain in Britain” and was used by Sir Edmund Hilary for his training prior to his ascent of Mount Everest in 1953. I have a railway which opened in 1896 and a cafe at the summit. My name literally means snow hill in Old English and some people believe that there is the tomb of a giant at my summit! Which mountain am I?
I am located in Europe and stand 2918m high. I have 52 peaks as well as numerous ravines and gullies. I had a very important role during Ancient times and at the beginning of every summer, I am the end point of a marathon. Which mountain am I?
I’ll post the answer when there are three correct posts…

This week we have begun writing our newspapers in Literacy and did our first Priory’s All Write. We also wrote different styles of poem for the Out of this World Competition. We have been learning lots of Geographical language for our topic work and we went on our visit to Weston Park Museum.
What did we do on the trip? Do you remember anything about Athena and any facts that Anita told us?
Science: with Mrs Dorrington we classified plants. Can you remember what the sorts of plants she brought in were?
This afternoon, we continued our work on how a volcano is formed by creating edible models (mmm 🙂 ). Using geographical language, can you name the main parts that you represented?
