Eagle Owl Class have been finishing of their mountain websites this week. They have included a front page and by-line, biographies from famous mountaineers, places to climb around the world which are shown on a map, graphs to show varying temperatures across the continents and some description of the physical and human geography within these areas. They have worked brilliantly on these and they look great.
