Long canal walk
Class: Year 4 Year: 2020 - 2021
We went for another walk along the canal but this time we were armed with an Ordnance Survey map of our local area and a clipboard. We had to identify on the map any evidence we could see of industrialisation in the area. We were able to notice the canal, railway, old factories which were still being used and had dates painted on the side, houses built close together near the factories and we also saw some of the walls and gates left behind from factories which have since been knocked down. We walked back along the disused railway track to school. Despite being focused on our learning, we found time to stop and reflect on the beautiful surroundings. We are very lucky to live so close to the countryside where we can appreciate God's creation. We were very tired and ready for our lunch when we got back to school!!
