Our topic this term is Wild Waters. We will be learning about different rivers in the UK and around the world. We will be looking at how these rivers are formed, people who settle near rivers, and also start thinking about how water travels. As well as this, we will be designing our own bridges and looking at the best structure for building bridges.
