Year 5 Rivers Presentation

As a hook to their new geography topic and to enrich their science learning about animals in our local habitat, our Year 5 pupils enjoyed a workshop run by the Wessex Rivers Trust. They learned about some technical vocabulary used to identify and describe different parts of a river and created a huge river model and found out some very interesting facts. Did you know that England has 80% of all the world's chalk streams!


We also found out more about the River Itchen, which is one of these precious chalk streams, and about some of the incredible living things that live in our local river.
