Year 4 Gilbert White

The children in Year 4 started off their Rivers topic this term by visiting Gilbert White’s Study Centre in Selborne.

 

We learnt some of the vocabulary associated with rivers. Then, we built a model river and named the different parts.

We also completed fieldwork in the river. We collected measurements that we can use back at school to draw the river’s profile at different points. Rubber ducks helped us to measure the speed of the river at different points. We also hunted for creatures living in the river; some children even found a fish!
