Can we talk to you about the River Can?

Year 3 used map reading skills to walk from the school to Admirals park to complete activities based on the River Can, a tributary to the River Chelmer. We sketched a view of the river, attempted to measure the velocity and also analysed a cross section of the river. We discussed that parts of the river do not go at the same speed and that it depends on where the river meanders and how much sediment and rocks are in the water.

 

The children had a great time viewing the river and observing what they have learnt in their Geography lessons.
