Year 4 at Wolseley Wildlife Centre and Essex Bridge
Year 4 have been studying Rivers and as part of their learning they visited the Wolseley Centre. This gorgeous nature reserve is on the banks of the River Trent, which is the third longest river in the UK. We were able to observe many different features of a river, including meanders, the current and floodplains. We were also able to see how the depth of water and speed of flow vary in the river.
It was also lovely being able to see all the different wildlife, including some very friendly robins, ducks and lots of geese.
After lunch we moved to Essex bridge which is further upstream from Wolseley. Here the river is broader and much shallower. It is also the point where the River Sow (a tributary) joins the River Trent. Essex Bridge is a 16th century packhorse bridge.
And of course we were able to use maps to help us navigate and locate ourselves as we went along.
