Today, in Year 3, we were excited to hear all about climbing mountains from a real-life mountaineer! He showed us all the different things he needs to take with him and how they have to be light and small to fit in his backpack. He put on the different clothing he wears and told us how it helps him as well as telling us about all the essential equipment he takes such as walking sticks, first aid kits, food and maps with a compass. He explained how they climb in teams or pairs and that it is harder to climb down than up a mountain. We had lots of questions to ask him too!
