Friday 19th July 2013 – ‘Hands-on’ River Project

Filed under: Geography,Whole School,Year 5 @ 12:12 pm

As a finale to all their learning this term about river systems, Year Five spent two crazy afternoons recently creating amazing papier mâché models of each section of the River Lymington.  This followed on directly from their field trip to the New Forest where the source, middle section and mouth of the river were carefully observed.  In addition to learning a great deal about 3D model-making, painting and embellishing, I was particularly impressed with the Geographical talk that took place whilst the children were making the models.  They carefully considered the height and shape of the land; the shape, width and depth of the river and the surrounding vegetation/man-made features needed in each instance.  Terms such as meander, bank, river cliff, deposition and marshland were used confidently and accurately.  The finished models were displayed in the parent shelter on the last afternoon of term and attracted many admiring comments.  Well done Year Five – hopefully this will be a project you will remember forever!
