Misty Mountain Sierra

Ideas for Homework

  • Choose one of the world’s highest mountains and create a PowerPoint presentation all about it to show you class. Don’t forget to include lots of interesting images and information.
  • Find out about animals that inhabit a mountainous area of the world. How do they adapt and survive? Are any of these animals endangered? Why?
  • Write an information book explaining how different types of mountains are formed. Include labelled diagrams showing each type. You could look at fold, block, dome, volcanic or plateau mountains and give examples of each mountain type.
  • We’ve talked about the Yeti………Now research other mysterious primates that have inspired people to search for them, such as Bigfoot in the USA or the Yeren of China. Make ‘Wanted’ posters, featuring a illustration of what you thing they may look like.
  • Create fact-files about famous mountaineers such as George Mallory, Sir Edmund Hilary or Reinhold Messner.
  • Research Mountain sports such as skiing, snowboarding, rock climbing or mountain biking. Choose one that excites you and create a scrapbook of information and images. Feature the equipment or clothing needed and the world’s best competitors in the sport. Perhaps you could find a class or a club and try the sport out for yourself?
  • Write a ‘True or False?’ quiz which includes amazing statements about mountains of the world.
  • Create a 3-D model of a mountain, mountain range or a particular local hill using ingredients of your choice. You could use jelly, cake or even mashed potato! Who can make the highest structure? Or the most realistic one? Take a picture to compare with your classmates’ model.
  • Write a ‘water cycle’ song or a rap! Make sure you fit in the key words, like condensation, precipitation and evaporation.
  • Write a diary entry for a child living in a mountainous region of the world. What happens in their daily life? How would their day differ from your own?

Year 4 learnt a great deal from the DHL truck drivers about road safety and blind spots. It was an incredibly insightful and enjoyable session.

For our engage session of our new topic in Cornerstones (Misty Mountains Sierra) we decide to give the children an experience of camping out on the snowy mountains of Sierra. We set up base camp with a tent and signs. The children were asked to put on their coats to get a real sense of the icy temperatures. Then the children had a go at making their own fold mountains using different coloured materials. This creative afternoon really gave Year 4 an insight into being a mountaineer!

On the 21st September 2017, Year 4 took part in a Greek themed afternoon, as part of our Cornerstones Topic. We all had the opportunity to dress up like the Ancient Greeks, taste their delicious food and decorate Greek vases. The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and developed an understanding of how it was like to live in this era.
