    River Severn is five kiloliters wide. The River Seven also has a bridge on the top so vehicles can get a cross the river.

    The upper course of the River started from a little boggy pool. When it just starts it is straight but also thin. The upper course can also be dangerous so I wouldn’t suggest swimming in it.

    After the River Seven has left the main course it goes in to middle course and starts to meander and get faster, but not fast as goes in to the sea when it starts to get a bit faster.

    Finally the river stops meandering and goes in to the sea and gets stronger.

    River Severn Report

    The River Severn starts in a small boggy pool in Wales and it is proven because at the source it has a post and it says River Severn marked here on it.

    It starts by forming a boggy pool and then a little waterfall, then into a stream which grows bigger and bigger.

    The River Severn is about three football pitches in length, which is at least five hundred meters, each football pitch and is 220 miles.

    River Severn is two thousand three feet above sea level and is three hundred and fifty kilometers in length.

    In the lower course it gets wider and wider, ending in the Celtic Sea.

    The River Severn is the longest River in the UK and is crossed by the longest bridge, the Severn Bridge.

    The River Seven is the longest river in Britain, it starts in Wales, it 20 metres deep however, it doesn’t stay the same height.

    The upper course runs rapidly, the river starts as a boggy pool because the water runs down the mountain and all the trickles and dribbles soaks into the ground and makes the ground all soggy and makes it boggy.

    The river gets to the waterfall it has to fall because it can’t wear the rock away so it has to go over.
    The river then runs into the middle course in which the river meanders and becomes wider.

    The lower course gets wider and eventually turns into a lake, it also gets slower, it ends in the Irish Sea and when it ends its called a Estuary.

    The journey of the River Seven and it slowly stops.

    River Severn

    This report will tell you about the River Severn, the largest in the U.K.
    The River Seven is 5km wide and 220 miles long .It starts in the Welsh Mountains goes through England and ends at the Irish Sea.

    In the upper course the water is fast flowing and it’s a stream. This is also where the river source is. It’s hard to believe but the River Severn source is a boggy pool in Wales. There are waterfalls that are caused by the water that can’t erode the big rocks so the water trickles over them. Even though the stream is fast the source is slow water.

    In the middle course the river starts to get wider the water starts to get slower and slower. If the middle of the River Severn floods it is surrounded by a flood plain.

    In the lower course the water meanders and then as it gets near to the sea the water virtually stops and the river starts to get a lot wider the river also gets a lot deeper.

    Finally the river meets the estuary and then flows into the Sea.

    L.o: To understand how to write a report.

    The source of the River Severn starts in Wales and ends at the sea. It is 5 km wide, 20 meters deep. It travels over 350 km.

    The first part of the river is a boggy pool. The water is oozing out of the ground. The first waterfall is only little but the water can’t easily wear down the rock. The dribbles and trickles combine and fast flows down the rocky mountainside.

    In the middle of the river the river starts to meander. A bit of the land that the rivers meanders by will be cut of and a bit of the river will be stranded.

    In the lower course of the river the flood plains start to get wider and that’s where is meets the Irish Sea.

    Here I am actually on the River Severn. The river is 220 miles in length, at this moment of time the river is 350 km away from the sea. It starts in Wales.

    The river at the upper course is fast flowing. I am at the source of the river. It looks terrible with all this muddy water surrounding the grass –land. I bet no one would like to swim in there. As the river is coming out of the source it is tearing into a stream

    At this point I am at the waterfall. But it is only a little one, the waterfall is created by the force. But it starts as soil the force of the force of the water gets rid of the soil and leaves the rock there because it is to strong to move and that creates a waterfall.

    The River Severn

    The River Severn is 5 kilometers wide, and the River Severn starts in Wales, goes through England and finishes at the sea. Also the River Severn is 20 meters deep and travels 350 kilometers

    The Upper Course is the narrow and fast part of the river. But still can do a lot of damage to the flood plain.

    The Middle Course is a bit fatter than the Upper Course. The Middle Course runs faster than the Upper Course.

    Flood Plain is a colossal field. It just sits next to the River Severn. Flood Plain is a good name for the field because it usually gets flooded

    The Lower Course is the end of the River Severn it runs into the Irish sea. Then all they do is mix.

    Hi I am at the source of the River Severn. At the moment the River Severn is a boggy pool.

    As the river flows along it comes to a waterfall and it can’t wear away the rocks so it goes over it.

    Now it’s starting to meander. So there’s only a bit to go until it reaches the sea!
