River Dee

Lesson: Geography

Class: Year 5B Year: 2016 - 2017

Year 5 conducted a river study of the River Dee in Chester.  First we went to Sandy Lane to observe a meander and wildlife at this stage of the river's journey. This is known as the middle course.  Then we travelled to Wirral Country Park to study the estuary of the River Dee, the lower course. We created sand sculptures of a river journey, mud-dipping and a scavenger hunt. The children enjoyed the trip and learnt lots of information on river features and wildlife. It was fantastic to experience this first hand.
