Y3/4 explore Barlaston Downs

On Wednesday 20th and Thursday 21st March, Year 3 and 4 children visited Barlaston Downs as part of their topic, ‘Rivers and Mountains’. On each day we met staff from Standon Bowers who took a group each to take part in a range of activities.

The children went on a walk along the stream, looking at its different features, most children even went into the water with some even taking some of the water home in their wellies! They mapped shape of the river bed and measured its speed using rubber ducks and a stopwatch. They also did some fishing and there were lots of different animals caught that live in the river.

Everyone had a super time at Barlaston Downs with many saying it was their ‘favourite trip ever’.
