Addresses the following areas of learning in the EYFS and KS1 National Curriculum:

  • Communication and language.

By the Riverbank is an interactive journey into the natural world, developing children’s understanding of different animals and plants and their needs. 

Ruby the park ranger is on a quest to find Portly, the lost baby otter.  She needs extra eyes and ears to explore the park and return him to his family.  The children join Ruby on her journey and learn about lots of other animals and how they live as they travel down the river in Ruby’s boat. 


Children will:

  • Learn about animals and plants and their habitats

  • Develop their speaking and listening skills

  • Practice problem solving in the context of a story


“The programme covered many aspects of the EYFS curriculum. It engaged all children, including those with EAL.  It encouraged their imaginations and developed their knowledge of the habitats of animals and natural environments. “
