Year 6 River Studies Visit

On Tuesday, Year 6 were fortunate to have beautiful weather for their trip to Knapp and Papermill to study the Leigh Brook. The children walked through the reserve to find spots on the river to carry out their studies. Whilst one group carried out kick sampling, to collect organisms to discover how polluted the water was, the other group measured the width, depth and velocity of the river. The children discovered all sorts of interesting creatures in the river, including a rather large cray fish (well spotted, George) and they also looked at the correlation between water depth and velocity. The children showed curiosity and interest in their activities and asked lots of questions. Well done, Year 6.
