Mighty Mountains Wow Day
Year 4 kicked off the first week of the Spring term and the beginning of our new topic with bang! On the first Wednesday of school, Year 4 had their Mighty Mountains WOW day. We began the day with a fun team building challenge: make the best mountain out of a small selection of materials (paper, blu tack, straws, lolly sticks, glue and 2 paper cups). Each team only had 15 minutes to make the best mountain that fulfilled all of the success criteria.
During the day, the children learnt facts about the 7 summits and different mountain ranges around the world, using an atlas to locate these. In the afternoon, they created some beautiful mountain inspired artwork using paints or coloured pens. The day with another bang - by created their own volcanic explosions using the reaction of baking soda, vinegar and washing up liquid in plastic bottles.
