Saltoun Primary School

River Trip

On Thursday P3-7 visited the River Tyne as part of their Water/Rivers topic. They split into 3 groups: 1 group canoed up the river with Martyn looking at the effects of erosion and deposition, 1 group worked with Richard to find out the depth and speed of the river and the last group worked with Leigh to find out what kind of species were living in the river. It was great to see all of the things we have been learning about in the classroom. Everyone had a great time and learned lots! We were also very lucky that the sun was shining for us! A big thank you to Martyn, Leigh and Richard for all of their help and expertise. Also a big thank you to Magi Mitchell who came along to help us 🙂 Take a look at our photos from the day.

  1. Hello Saltoun!

    Hope you’ve all dried out after the river trip. We certainly had a lot of fun, hope you did too.

    The Ranger Service now has its own blog, which you can find at – you may recognise a few familiar faces!
