What are mountains?

As part of the Year Six geography curriculum, the children in Year Six are learning about mountains. We began the topic by revisiting our previous learning on mountains and created a mind map of what we already knew. It was lovely to see that as a class we already knew lots about mountains!

Our learning today was to compare mountains to moorlands, hills and low lands. To help us understand the different heights of land, we went on a walk around the school grounds to identify areas of land which were at different heights. Mr Janjua also shared with us that Year Six will be visiting Dovedale later on this term to help us develop our understanding of this topic. We will actually get the opportunity to reach the summit of a hill and look down at the spectacular view! We can’t wait for this trip!

    The minimum height for a mountain to be a mountain is 500 metres and if it is less than 500 metres it’s not classified as a mountain.
