Class 1 river trip

1st July 2022
Class 1 had a great trip to Birkey Burn with a teacher from Tyne Rivers Trust. We found lots of different animals in the river- a sign that it is healthy. We enjoyed doing kick sampling, then looking at the animals carefully and working out what they were using classification keys. Back at school we looked at a model of a river and learned about flooding and what can be done to prevent it.
