Year 1 trip to Thames Barrier

Year 1 became Explorers of the River Thames as part of their “Natural Explorers” Unit. We spent the day at Thames Barrier at the Information Centre, learning about how River Thames is used by those using boats as a mode of transport. We also learned about how the Thames Barrier was built and how it is defending the city of London during heavy storms or high sea levels. We all enjoyed spending some time playing at the park along the river at the end of our trip.
