Year 4 River Wear Walk

Year 4 have been learning all about rivers. We have looked at the structure of a river and some famous rivers from around the world.

We visited the mouth of the River Wear at Roker and then walked back along the river towards Southwick. We noticed how the river became narrower as we moved away from the mouth. We also noticed the meanders and discussed the erosion and deposition.
