Misty Mountain, Winding River

Our first topic for this year is going to be Misty Mountain, Winding River! Where we will be exploring the characteristics and features of a river, including how they shape the landscape over time and their significance around the world. We will have the opportunity to learn about the stages of the water cycle, how to locate and plot geographical places on a map, as well as find out how contour lines are used to show the topography of an area. 


As we dive deeper into our Misty Mountains topic we will be hoping to use a case study of the Somerset Levels flooding to understand how human and natural influences can have an impact on the environment and have a go at designing our own 3D mountain models! Please find below some helpful resources about our topic that you and your children can explore together before the term starts...
