As part of our Culture Capital trip, Fairsnape class spent the day visiting Scorton by going to discuss our current ‘Topic’ subject which is ‘Flow’. We also went to the picnic area for our lunch, followed by the trip conclusion of spending a short time at the park/play area. The objective of the day was to introduce the students to features and aspects of rivers and associated characteristics of flowing water and its constituents. Overall, the day was enjoyable and educational.
The students observed how rivers move and flow as they progress from source to mouth. They could also see how both nature and animals utilise the river as part of their natural habitats. After this, we had a great packed lunch prepared by the school chef, before we moved over to the park and play area. We all brought away many enjoyable memories from the day that we could reflect upon in the lessons that followed surrounding water and flow.
