Year 6 enjoyed a great day visiting Denham Country Park where they took part in three activities: A wild walk, river dipping and river dynamics. On the wild walk the children had the opportunity to identify various wildlife, listen to the sounds around them, find out about Deep Lock on the canal and they even had a game of Pooh sticks whilst working out which part of the River Colne flowed fastest. During river dipping they learnt the best way to disturb the river bed in order to use nets to see what organisms they could catch. They were then able to use magnifying glasses and identification sheets to work out the names of the creatures they had caught. The river dynamics session had the children using science and maths techniques to measure the width, depth and flow of the river. They were really lucky with the weather and most managed to stay dry! The children can now use this information to enhance their understanding of our rivers topic.
