Prep Pupils Enjoy Hands-on Learning
Our Year 2 and Year 5 pupils visit Stibbington environmental education centre.
Our Year 2 and Year 5 pupils this week enjoyed separate visits to Stibbington environmental education centre in Cambridgeshire. As part of the Geography syllabus, our older children enjoyed a sunny day investigating rivers, flooding and the landcape. They collected data relating to the speed of river flow and channel cross section, as well as conducting experiements to look at river processes including erosion, transport and deposition.
Meanwhile, the younger children bug hunted, pond dipped, photographed leaves, tested solar panels and learned all about the direction and strength of the wind.They also collected leaves and flowers to make 'memory strips' of their visit.
