Report written by Caitlin and Molly (Cedar)
Last week, Year 5 went on a trip to Harden Beck. Cedar went on Monday and Laurel went on Wednesday. We did lots of activities such as: leaf races, mini beast hunting, measuring the length and depth of the river and observational drawings. We got to see a beautiful waterfall and its features. The water was so powerful that it created a breeze and the spray coming off it made us a bit wet!
After the activities, we had to cross a bridge to get to a field where we ate our lunch. Whilst eating our lunch we found a baby frog on grass! Carefully, we picked it up and put it back in the water. Once we had eaten out lunch we had to climb up a huge grassy hill which was very tiring! When then had to go down a rocky and slippery slope that led to a farm. From there on, it was a regular footpath which led to the minibuses.
We would recommend Harden Beck and we’d definitely go back there. Our favourite part was when we were able to get into the river to measure its length and depth. If you like wildlife and walking you will love it.
