Amethyst and Topaz River Trip

November 2018

River Monsters is the topic this half term for class Amethyst and Topaz!

We travelled to Castleton where we studied a river. We investigated the depth, width and speed of the river, recording and using different measuring strategies and equipment.

We learned about some of the rivers journey and the geographical names for parts of the river.

Did you know that the river carries sediment (bits of rock and soil) on its journey and that is called transportation? 

Did you know that a bend in a river is called a meander?
