The week long camp which included a full day river trip down the River Tweed, camping local to Peebles, local adventure walk, cooking and preparing own food, wildlife watching, problem solving. This great week was led by school staff with ELOLS support. It was designed with the young people and schools staff ensured taht it linked directly with learning already happening at school. The whole experience was then used subsequently back in school to reinforce learning.
Working alongside class teacher and ranger service every child had the opportunity develop movement skills to canoe a section of river/ discover living things within the river and their life cycle/ make some scientific accurate measurements of river flow, depth, width using appropriate units and tools. They used the River Tyne local to the school. Looking at a map the pupils were able to use their map reading skills to discover that the river flowing behind their school was part of the same river system that they were investigating
