R11 River Trip
R11 had a fantastic trip to the Gower following the River Ilston, learning about how it changes over its journey from its source to the sea.
We started 7km from the beach at Three Cliffs Bay and finished overlooking the truly spectacular view of the bay, from the height of the beautiful ruins of Pennard castle. As we progressed, the children measured various aspects of the river (speed, width and depth) at different points, learning how the river works and why it changes, along with various things we can do to protect our houses from flooding in the villages we passed.
The children coped brilliantly with the distance walked and some wet feet (we had a number of compliments on the politeness of the children from passers-by), and despite the mud, we had perfect weather on our side. All agreed the view at the end made it all worth it! Hiya R and Rayan J both said it was one of their favourite trips in the Juniors and Aalya D said she ‘had an amazing day’.
An all round successful trip and a huge thank you to Dawn for a fantastic educational experience.
Mr R Dennis and Miss K Ling
