Y4 River Fieldwork

To tie in with our ‘Amazonian Adventure’, Y4 learned about the features of rivers, and how water flows through them. To embed the new vocabulary and test out some ideas (hypotheses) we had come up with, we visited Old Hay Brook on a Geography Field Trip. We sketched and annotated what we could see, using tier three vocabulary like meander, confluence, tributary and riverbank. We were involved lots of hands on, practical learning, but almost everyone managed to come home with (fairly) dry feet!
