The SuperSchemes series provides primary teachers with the means to develop geography units of work with confidence. Each book starts with:
  • advice and guidance on how to approach the topic
  • an explanation of the geography rooted in the unit
  • background information to get you started.
The whole suggested unit is laid out in the medium term plan, which is followed by detailed and resourced lesson plans for two lessons. Further ideas for developing the remaining four lessons in the unit complete the book and provide you with a springboard to take your geography teaching further.

The unit aims to teach pupils about physical processes connected with rivers and the formation of river landscapes, and the interaction between physical and human environments through river flooding. It offers suggestions for river fieldwork activities in an urban or rural context.

Pupils have the opportunity to widen their locational knowledge of rivers in the UK, Europe and the world through the use of maps and atlases.
