Who doesn’t like messing about in rivers?
This week, Year 5 found a geographical reason to do just that. In past years, we have worried about muddy banks, sudden water surges and rain. Our biggest concerns this year were heat stroke and whether there would be much water in our local streams. On the coolest day in a long while, we set off to measure widths, depths and speeds.
Our two, contrasting locations were Sweatford Water Meadows (where many local people walk their dogs) and the Parsonage Park part of Sweatford Water.
Many, many thanks to the intrepid adults who accompanied us and without whom we would not be able to undertake ‘hazardous pursuits’ in our local area.
