Yesterday, you learned that the source of the river means where a river starts. You'd think that finding the source of a river would be easy, but turns out it can often be quite tricky - like when explorers tried to find the source of the River Nile.

       This extract from Horrible Geography: Raging Rivers tells the story of how, for years, explorers just could not find the source, until one day, they did!

       This week, I have written questions that fit into 4 of our different Reading Vipers categories: Vocabulary, Infer, Explain and Retrieve. I hope you enjoy the text and good luck answering the questions.


Please submit your learning to me for feedback by Monday (09:00) for feedback that day at the latest.
