Great British Rivers

The Severn, Thames and Trent river basins cover a vast area of Britain. Alongside them lie many large and significant towns, cities and conurbations that owe their development to water-linked industry and commerce. Agriculture, too, is dependent on the water and mineral-rich sediments that these rivers bring to rural areas. The activities suggested in the topic can be used as a springboard for cross-curricular work that will encompass a range of subjects, including geography, literacy, numeracy and science.
