Today we picked up all the year 5 & 6 from Lindale in Marton school and after an initial classroom session to teach them the basics and hand out wellies and waterproofs we headed up to the Walna Scar Road area nr Coniston and complete a full study of the river investigating how a river changes as it moves downstream. From sauce to mature river the team measured the width, depts, speed of flow, gradient, and the size of the rock in the bed of the rive. At the end of the day everyone went away with a real knowledge of what happens to a rive and a good vocabulary and understanding. We look forwards to taking the team Abseiling and Gorge scrambling at the start of next term.
