Today we have been working in groups to make rivers outside. We used bowls as the source, made tin foil/guttering waterfalls and dug out ditches to explore creating a variety of shaped rivers. We discovered lots of important facts about rivers and the practical activity helped us to use the river vocabulary that we had been learning in class.
When you are out and about near the river get your child to tell you about these words.
