Year three trip to Leigh Heritage Centre
Last week the Year three children visited Leigh Heritage Centre and Plumb Cottage to enhance their learning about the current topic rivers, looking at how historically the Thames had a key role in the life of people who lived on the estuary. While there the children carried out a Geography field study on Bell Wharf beach where they created a survey of beach use and collecting data on the different types of vessels that use the estuary.
The Children had a wonderful time gaining first-hand experience of how people lived and worked on the estuary in the past. A massive thank you to the volunteers who inspired the children with their knowledge and enthusiasm.
