Mountain Environment


Pupils become mountaineers for the day, creating and exploring enquiries.  Their mountaineering pack will equip them to carry out field work, observations and record data.  Reflecting on their experiences, pupils will be encouraged through critical thinking to consider our impact on the mountain, and produce creative writing as a celebration of their experience.
