What is a river?
The enquiry begins by establishing the key concept that rivers change over their course from source to mouth and develop distinctive physical features as they do so by altering the environment through erosion and deposition. Children are supported to apply a wide range of geographical skills that draw upon map work, satellite imagery and GIS resources to consolidate their understanding. Time is also devoted to exploring rivers, in particular their estuaries as important ecosystems and habitats for a wide range of living things. They are then introduced to examples of the many ways in which humans interact with rivers and exploit them economically as a resource, especially as ports for trade
