Mount Kilimanjaro Exploration

Leave a comment

Class 4 have been finding out about mountains this week in class. They located mountains in the UK using atlases and then focussed their attention on Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. The class looked at a website all about the mountain and found out some interesting facts… but they wanted to know what it was actually like to climb up the mountain!! Miss Felton contacted her brother, who lives in Australia, but has climbed Mount Kilimanjaro back in 2013. Class 4 got to work writing questions, which Miss Felton emailed to her brother. He then replied with some great answers which the children found interesting… including where he had to go to the toilet!! A huge thank you to David for giving us an insight into his time climbing the mountain and sending us some super pictures too.
