RIVER STUDY VISIT TO CUERDEN VALLEY PARK
As part of our project about rivers, we visited Cuerden Valley Park and found out all about the features of rivers. We worked with the ranger and studied the River Lostock. We enjoyed working as geographers and measured the speed (velocity) of the river by timing how long it took rubber ducks to travel 10 metres.
Also, we compared the woodland habitat that we had studied at school with a river habitat. Mason found a clinging mayflower nymph – which looked quite scary!
