On Tuesday 7th May year 5 set off to put their geography knowledge into practise by exploring the River Lea. Our guide took us on a walk alongside the old River Lea, where the children demonstrated their impressive knowledge as they pointed out key features and ticked them off their spotter’s guide. We were lucky enough to see several nesting birds; the children were particularly excited to see seven goslings swim by with their mum!
After a picnic lunch amongst the trees, the children were given binoculars in order to view the various waterbirds nesting on the lake. As always, the children were impeccably behaved and the group leaders commented that they had enjoyed their time with us.
