Over this half term, Year 5 have been learning the key physical and human features associated with rivers, including our local River Trent. In D.T. lessons we made our own river models from a range of materials that could be used to teach others about the key physical features. We had to problem solve how we would fix together the parts of the model so that they would be an accurate representation, while staying attached and looking neat!
The Year 5 adults were extremely impressed with all of the children's teamwork and ability to negotiate and compromise to create many stunning, detailed river models.
Look out for the display in school in January for more photos of our models and the facts we found out.
