‘Rivers 2 U’ Workshop


Today we were delighted to welcome the team from the Yorkshire Dales river’s Trust to begin working with the first of the Key Stage Two Groups on ‘The Journey of a River’ workshop.

At St Peter‘s, we value the importance of engaging young geographers in local fieldwork, and we are fortunate that Yorkshire Dales Rivers Trust offer hands-on-learning through its Rivers2U Project.

Expert staff lead practical and informative small group sessions from their Rivers2U van – a mobile classroom which is fitted with the following:

  • A Rivers Table – hands-on learning which shows how rivers work from source to sea.
  • Microscopes – which allow children to observe and identify the minibeasts and river flies that live in our watercourses.
  • Displays showing different aspects of rivers and their wildlife habitats.

We would very much like to thank Friends of St Peter’s (FOSP)  for their generosity in agreeing to fund these educational workshops.
