What a day Y4 had at Bolton Abbey yesterday – the children had a wonderful day of outdoor learning! After our learning about rivers it was a great opportunity to see the magnificent River Wharfe. We started the morning by walking along the riverbank and observing the various features – a meander, evidence of erosion, and a sandy beach which turned into pebbles. Then, we looked at aerial maps of the river and built our own map using natural resources to show the features. Finally, we played a water cycle game in which we acted as water droplets and moved around from the ocean, to clouds, to rivers and back to the ocean. In the afternoon, we split in to two groups and did various activities. One group went on a nature walk through the nearby woodland, looking out for living things and their habitats and classifying them. The second group had a great time exploring measurement, using the trees at Bolton Abbey to consider the relative length of things. The children were engaged and involved throughout the day and all in all a lot of fun was had!
