Exploring the Source to the Sea

Pupils in Year 5 enjoyed a two day Geography Field Trip exploring the River Fal and how it changes on its journey to the sea.

 

On day one, the pupils explored an area of Goss Moor on foot to discover the source of the Fal, taking advantage of the opportunity to develop some of their map reading skills at the same time.

 

On day two they boarded rafted Canadian canoes and paddled all the way from Boscawen Park to Loe Beach, stopping for a picnic lunch on the way. The children were able to experience how the river changes and how it is used, as well as learning about some of the history of the estuary from Roman times to the present day, including the vital part it played during the Second World War.
