Links to books and maps will take you straight to pages at where you can see further details of the publication. All external links, will be displayed in a new window. I do check external links - but not very frequently! If you follow any which are out of date, please let me know.
The photographs and captions are designed to be of use in the teaching of the Rivers theme in Key Stage 2 of the National Curriculum (England & Wales). Other issues, such as communications and settlement are also illustrated. I've had feedback from colleagues and students in secondary schools saying that the site has been useful up to A level!
A simplified version of the pages has been written by Wendy Pallant. Wendy's site contains a bank of resources for pupils with special needs, who are reading at NC levels 1 and 2, along with links and other information.
If you spot any errors, or if you use the site in a school please let me know (I've had e-mails from Australia, the USA and the Middle East commenting on the site, and providing helpful corrections. Recently I've had more feedback from the UK - but still not as much as from further afield).
All of the material (files, photographs, text and graphics - other than Amazon.co.uk, Schoolzone, 1and1.co.uk and Geography World logos) is copyright Graham Dean 1999 - 2010. It may be used freely within state funded educational establishments, but all other use, without prior permission, is prohibited).
