Wren Class trip to the River Lavant

16th January 2023

This term Wren class reception children made an intrepid trip to the River Lavant. Luckily, the flooding had gone down and we were able to observe the river and find out information about it. The children observed the meanders and how high the water level was. They saw how clear the water was because it is a chalk stream and they talked about there being no water in the summer because it is a Winterbourne river. They know the river starts in East Dean and that the mouth is in Chichester Harbour near Fishbourne. They have made their own book full of facts too!
