Class 3 Rivers Trip

On Wednesday 4th March Class 3 went on a rivers trip which started at Ribblehead to locate the source of the river Ribble. We then drove down to Horton to see how the river had changed. It was fantatsic to see the children's enthusiasm as they found meanders, tributaries and confluences, brining our classroom learning to life. We learnt more about erosion and deposition and the speed a river travels when it starts to meander. We loved watching drone footage of the Ribble, following its 72 mile course from source to mouth and a definate highlight was getting stuck in the mud! Class 3 want to say a big thank you to Anthea at the Yorkshire Dales Millenium Trust for such a wonderful trip.
