Year 5 took to the art room this week to learn all about rivers. In groups, they used their research and creative skills to make models of the Thames, The Nile, The Mississippi and the Ganges.
Rivers are an excellent topic through which all kinds of learning experiences can flow. The children learned about some of the wonderful rivers of the world, where they are located, and how they are formed, creating fact files and model rivers. and learning to distinguish between tributaries and deltas, confluences and sources. Tomorrow they will test their knowledge with a quiz to see how many of the facts and key terms have sunk in and check if any have drifted away.
