Y5 Trip to Gadespring

On Thursday last, Year 5 enjoyed some magnificent autumnal weather down at the old cress beds, now known as Gadespring and part of the Box Moor Trust.  We did some bird watching, pond dipping (removing 2 unwelcome crayfish visitors from the USA who destroy the mini ecosystems within ponds by eating it all ) and a minibeast hunt, where we found lots of small frogs.   With Waterways Experiences, we spent time navigating the canal, steering the boat and learning how a lock works, taking it in turns to open and close them.

One child said that it was better than Chessington!
