From humble beginnings the river flows down the mountain and in to the sea.
Pull on your wellies and wade right in… How deep does it go and how fast does it travel? What soil types can you find by the riverside? Which animals make their homes there? Let’s get down to the riverbank and find out.
This half term, we’ll learn about the rivers in Gillingham and the surrounding area using mapping skills and use research to discover more about the world’s greatest rivers. We will learn about the water cycle and how rivers are formed. We will use our knowledge to create debate and persuasion in our writing. What could happen if we build houses on a floodplain?
During our Innovate week, we will be investigating the source of some mystery pollution as we become a local news team. Where did it come from and who is to blame?
