We asked the boys all about the trip:
Where did you go?
Luca: Hudnall Park and the river Gade.
What did you learn?
Luca: I learnt how an ox-bow lake is formed-from big meanders which erode the landscape then cut across to make a separate lake over years.
Johannes: How to identify living organisms from the river.
What were the highlights?
Ethan: My highlight was the velocity experiment which showed how fast the river flows in metres per second. Also upper, middle, and lower course of the river.
Oscar: When we went dipping in the river. I learnt about nymphs, fish, and different species living in the river. I loved using the magnifying glass to observe a microscopic snail.
What would you rate the trip out of 10?
Max: Probably 11/10 because I really liked the quiz and the whole day.
Billy: 9/10. I enjoyed meeting the animals in the river.
Would you go back there?
Alfie: I would go back to the river to find more animals.
