Picture News - Week 5 01.02.21

This week's Picture News (1st February 2021) is:

'Why do people choose to climb mountains?'

 

A team of climbers from Nepal have become the first ever to summit the world’s second highest mountain, K2, in winter. The 10 climbers reached the summit of Pakistan's K2, more than 20 years after the first winter attempt to reach the 8611m summit. K2 is considered incredibly difficult to climb due to the high winds and sub-zero temperatures.

Things to talk about at home…

 

  • Think of a time when you completed a challenge or finished something you found difficult. What was it? Talk about how you felt before, during and after. Are you glad you did it?
  • How do you think the climbers felt when they reached the summit? Why do you think they wanted to take part in the challenge?

 

Let us know your opinion on the blog and, as always, use the resources to help you.
