Let’s meander through the world of rivers, taking a dip in to their watery world!We will walk to the River Tees and learn more about it and the bridges that cross it. Next, we will hop on an imaginary boat and travel some of the world’s most majestic rivers – the Ganges, the Thames, the Amazon and the Nile. We will also create some abstract water patterns.
