Along the riverbank

Posted on: 24 Mar 2015 by Weston Green School | Category: Key Stage 2, Year 5

Year 5 set off for their river walk on the morning of 11th March and could not have wished for better weather. It was a sunny, early spring morning, and they were very fortunate to be able to spend an hour walking the banks of the rivers Mole and Ember on such a lovely day. The drive to the starting point of the walk is barely 5 minutes from the school, once again reiterating how lucky we are to be surrounded by so many landmarks.

Within a short space of time, the pupils were able to identify a large number of the key features of a river such as meander, tributary and erosion. They immediately spotted that the waterfall was not natural, but man made in order to guide the water along a channel. The pupils also noticed that the river was travelling at different speeds and, with the water’s velocity slower on the inside, deposition occurred as a result.

The walk was an excellent way to help the pupils understand the geographical features associated with a river, and, best of all, it is on the school’s doorstep.
