River Study


You will begin your journey with the dramatic back drop of the Peak District National Park, discovering your upland river. Through geographical and scientific enquiry, pupils will plan and carry out simple fieldwork experiments to test their hypothesis. Paddling in the brook and engaging in a real life experience, they will have a multi-sensory experience that they won’t forget. There is an option to river dip and find out what creatures live in the river during warmer weather.
