Year 5 Visit the Local Canal

November and December 2014

On a Wednesday afternoon during the months of November and December, groups of Year 5 children walked to the local canal.

Whilst there, they learned about the history of the canals, why and when they were built. They saw how the lock gates worked and the reason locks were built on canals.

They also did some sketching and rubbings.
