Harehope Quarry

First school visit

We’ve had our first school visit of the season today.  Years 4, 5 and 6 from Frosterley Primary School came to do a river study.  Everywhere was very wet and muddy but the river levels were low and the children made the most of the opportunity to get into the river to take their measurements.  This was an excellent way to extend their knowledge of rivers, carry out a simple scientific investigation and enjoy some ‘plodging’, even though it is only the first day of February.
