River Blackwater field trip

The children were incredibly well-behaved this afternoon and enjoyed the trip to the River Blackwater to identify some features of a river and surrounding area (although possibly not the walk back uphill!)


We spotted a bridge, a man-made waterfall, a bend in the river, a tributary, the riverbank and lots of wildlife.  The children also noticed lots of trees growing in the area around the river.  We look forward to comparing the features of the River Blackwater here to the River Blackwater in Maldon on our school trip in March.
