Parts of a River
The children really enjoyed learning about the various parts of the river. They had fun drawing and labelling their own river diagrams. They enjoyed learning more about Bradán’s journey as she travelled towards the river estuary.
They were also interested in learning about river pollution and how it can be prevented. Pollution such as silage juice is dangerous for Bradán. The girls and boys looked at a sample of real silage from a farm – it had a very strong smell!
The children worked collaboratively to create colourful pieces of art inspired by rivers.
We used paint to signify water flowing and we stuck buttons on to represent the rocks on the riverbed. We had fun working together!
