14th – 18th May: Y4 build river models

Year 4 have been working really hard this week making 3D representations of a river system from source to mouth.  Working in pairs they gradually built up the mountains, foothills, floodplains and the coast using newspaper and tape. They then used modroc to create a hard surface and add details.  Next they carefully mixed and applied paint. Tomorrow they will add labels.  Quite apart from being beautiful models they also demonstrate their secure geographical understanding of a river system.  A week well spent, I’m sure you’ll agree.
