The trip enabled the children to look at how rivers and streams are formed. Although the layout in Pymes Park was man made the children were able to get an insight into the surrounding areas of a river bank. They got up close and personal with many of the habitats that lived alongside the water line.

Children conducted investigations of mini beasts in a concentrated area and looked to see how plant life was used to sustain life along the bank. They really did enjoy their roles as botanists, some of them maybe a little too much!

Many of the bird life, especially the ducks, took a liking to our pupils as they surrounded them and followed them around the river area.

It was a great morning out with lots of opportunities for hands on learning and after all the hard work, thechildren had a well deserved picnic in the park.
