Primary Geography

Following a hugely successful study on the River Mersey in 2015 in LKS2, our current Year 5 class made a movie about a lost seal.  Their short film explains the features of a river, then plots the route of Dumbledore the seal, who found his way to Newton-le-Willows.  The innovative movie caught the attention of the Geographical Association and Geography Coordinator Mrs Mansell was invited to write an article about their work called Rivers in Reverse  .
