Going with the Flow
Last week, Year 5 went on a field-trip to the Oakhanger Stream and visited the Gilbert White Field Studies Centre. We worked with a local geographer to perform experiments to help us understand transportation, erosion and deposition along the river. She also helped us in developing our understanding of the relationships between sources of water and how settlements develop. We even stomped up to the top of a large hill in the afternoon and viewed a real V-shaped valley in the distance. Year 5 were curious and professional in their studies, approaching their experiments with rigour and enthusiasm. As their teacher, I was very proud! Well done Year 5.
