Year 4 Ribble Rivers Day

At the beginning of March the children and staff from Year 4 went to Towneley Park in Burnley to take part in a Ribble Rivers Day. We split into groups and some of us started with a riverside investigation. We got into the river and collected samples of all the minibeasts and invertebrates that live on the river bed. We used keys to sort them and magnifying glasses to take a closer look. Inside the Towneley Hall building we did a water table activity, considering the effect of farming and flood defences on erosion and the river flow. We had a great day and learnt a lot about rivers and everything that lives in them.
