Our approach to learning
We believe the UK’s longest river can uniquely inspire young learners. We want local children and young people to make a powerful connection with the River Severn. Outreach is a fundamental element of our project, and we aim to engage over 6000 school children. In partnership with schools, our project will develop pupils’ understanding and pride in the natural heritage of our river.
We want to inspire awe and wonder when young people visit the riverside. Back in the classroom, arts activities and storytelling will ignite young imaginations, help children embed their learning and creatively explore this underwater river-world. Young people will also have powerful opportunities to see STEM applied in practice in the ambitious engineering that will enable this river restoration for migratory fish.
Unlocking the Severn provides exciting opportunities to learn about the fish in the river, their life cycles, and the remarkable journeys of migrating fish. We will also encourage young people to learn about the challenges that fish and other wildlife face in the river.
History and Geography
Discover how the river has shaped our landscape and how people have relied on and related to the river through time.
Our river restoration project will use technical solutions to help fish and people on the river co-exist better – allowing endangered fish to flourish once again.
