Year 5 River Trip
On the 15th May, Year 5 went on a river trip to Lymington. Everyone was in groups, my group was with Mrs Mars.
When we were all in the bus, the bus driver drove us to the upper course in White Field Moor. Quietly, in our groups, we walked over to the Silver Stream, trying not to disturb the pony and its foal.
First each group found a part of water then we all gathered facts about it. My group found out its width, depth and how long it takes a lolly stick to float 10 meters.
After we all got in the bus, the bus driver drove us to our middle course in Balmer Lawn. There we got back in our groups and had to tell Mrs Mars what erosion, deposition, floating, shallow and deep, traction, meander and what lots of more things meant.
Last we drove to Lymington where we finally had lunch a little later then 1 o’clock. Lymington is the lower course and is right next to the sea. The last activity we did was to write down how you knew you were near the sea.
