Year 3 and 4 Enrichment

Mountains

As part of their topic this term on mountains,
year 3 and 4 visited Dartmoor and walked up
Belstone Tor, to help them answer the question;
Is Dartmoor a mountain? 

They used maps to help them navigate and also learnt how knowing the direction the wind was going in
could help them to make sure they were going
the right way even if they lost their maps. 

The children showed great resilience to walk up the
450 metre high tor, which they learnt was not
quite tall enough to be classed as a mountain.
