Our theme this term will be all about Survival. This week we have been conducting research on mountains around the world, how to survive in extreme conditions, the mountain environment to inspire our artwork, and artic adventurers. Our literacy work has been inspired by the extraordinary story of Joe Simpson and Simon Yates depicted in the film 'Touching the Void'. In 1985, these two climbers attempted to climb the Siula Grande mountain in Peru, what happened on this journey remains part of mountaineering legend. Its a brilliant film and we are really enjoying it.
