This half term our adventure is following a book called 'The Abominables' which links to our adventure 'Moving Mountains'. We will begin the adventure by following Lucy, Clarence and Ambrose on Mount Everest and then throughout the book we will look at different mountain ranges across the world. From there we will be learning all about maps, rocks and pilgrimages. I hope you're as excited for our adventure as we are!
Who wouldn't be excited about a bunch of mysterious Yeti's?
