Year 4 visit Carding Mill Valley

It’s been a week of geography trips at Hydesville. Pupils in Year 4 also visited Carding Mill Valley on Wednesday, to finish off their study on rivers.

They started the day by completing some sketches and watercolour paintings of the valley, with many including the river and its meanders and some of the many sheep who call Carding Mill their home.

After lunch, they went invertebrate dipping with the groups finding many mayfly and dragonfly nymphs along with some water snails, a freshwater shrimp and even some fish eggs!

Finally, the pupils studied the velocity of the river in different parts of the it and discussed why the flow of the river varied at different parts of its course.

A fun – and educational day – was had by all!
