After listening to the opening chapter of ‘Wind in the Willows’, we imagined what it must have been like for Mole seeing a river for the first time. In writing, we used imaginative language to describe the sights and sounds of a river.

We wondered where the river came from and where it was going. We read a beautifully illustrated book which described the river’s journey..

..but it was the diagram at the back of the book that really caught our eyes! It inspired us to create 3D models of the river’s journey from source to sea.
After finding our about the river’s journey through town and country, we thought about creatures that make the river their home. In science, we classified river animals into family groups and learned the scientific definition for each one.

We learned that all creatures have a life-cycle and discovered how these differ between species.
