Year 5 River Fieldwork
The year 5 children have been learning about the local rivers in Northumberland. They recently conducted a river study by tracking the River Aln downstream observing its physical and environmental changes as it flowed form source to mouth. It was a great opportunity for them to develop their geographical skills.
" I really liked the trip, we had to do a lot of work before going; like map reading, compass reading and we had to learn about coordinates."
(Jed - Year 5)
"We have never learned anything like this before, and we have never been on a trip like that before, It was really fun! I really liked taking part in the risk assessment we learned that there are lots of dangers around. (Olivia - Year 5)
