Today P5 all went to Branthwaite to experience a practical river workshop. We were concerned that, following over three weeks of dry weather, whether there would be water actually for us to use. However, all was well (plenty of water) albeit high temperatures meant we had to work mostly in the shade.
After a whole class treasure hunt, we worked in three groups. One group did stream dipping and identified the fish and creatures that were in the stream, a second group made a river (labelled the main parts) from items found in a nearby wood and the third group completed a map drawing activity - making use of a key they were given. The groups rotated and everyone improved their skills and knowledge from the trip.
