Climbing the Himalayas

Miss Ryan

When Class 4 found out their Geography topic was ‘Around the World’, Austin had a great idea…


“My Dad does mountaineering and he has climbed the Himalayas. He can come in and tell you all about it if you like!”


Austin’s dad, Andrew, came in to visit class 4 and told the children all about his adventures, climbing the Himalayas. It was really interesting and the children had lots of questions. Andrew explained that you need lots of special equipment when you are going to be a mountain climber. Andrew showed the children his harness, helmet, axe, crampons and special clothing he needed when climbing the mountain.

The children got to try on and try out some of the items that Andrew had brought in.

Thank you Andrew
