Year 3 River Study

Well it's been four years in the making but yesterday we finally got to take part in our Year 3 Geography fieldwork river study! We had the BEST day! Once again, your children did you and us proud and showed all of the school values - most notably: respect, resilience and co-operation. We took part in a range of activities including: mapwork using compasses and co-ordinates, sticky river scene pictures, measuring the depth of the river at a cross-section and measuring the velocity (speed) of the river flow with... an orange! We enjoyed our picnic lunch by the park too. We clocked up 25,000 steps by the end of the day - phew! We loved getting in the water although it was super cold! Our bodies soon adjusted to that though :-) we finished the day reflecting on how lucky we are to live and go to school in such a beautiful area with a shallow river like that on our doorstep for us to walk to. Forever grateful!
