Rivers of the United Kingdom: Single Lesson for Year 1/2

£3.50

The National Curriculum states that Children should be taught to use basic geographical to refer to key physical features, including beach, cliff, coast, forest, hill, mountain, sea, ocean, river, soil, valley, vegetation, season and weather. Also children should be taught to use world maps, atlases and globes to identify the United Kingdom and its countries, as well as the countries, continents and oceans studied at this key stage. Children should be taught to use simple compass directions (North, South, East or West) and locational and directional language for example: near and far; left and right, to describe the location and features and routes on a map.

In this lesson children will learn about rivers in the United Kingdom. Firstly, children learn about the course of a river and label a simple diagram. Children will then participate in a quiz about rivers which tests children’s knowledge about the features of the course of a river. Children will then name and locate some of the rivers in the United Kingdom before learning about some of the animals that live in or around a river.
