Year 5 enjoyed the morning sunshine as they learnt about canal and navigational features when they went on a cruise on the River Lee Navigation. They looked at riverside history and had a good understanding of life on a narrow boat and how a lock works. The children produced canal boat art, using traditional designs and also managed to spot lots of bird life along the canal. After lunch, they went on a river walk and improved their geography field skills by measuring the water flow rate and working on field sketches. It was an enjoyable and informative day!
