Rio Grande Spring 2017

Many dams have been built along the Rio Grande to control the water flow. This diversion has changed the flow so much that today only approximately 20% of the water reaches the Gulf of Mexico.

Rio Grande (year 4) recorded a special broadcast about books for World Book Day. The school had a visit by Bookman on Monday and celebrated Pancake Day on Tuesday. The children also select the news stories this week and talked about cyber safety.
