Year 3 and 4 visit Beeston Locks
Our recent trip to Beeston Locks has left us buzzing with excitement! We explored the history of this magnificent canal, uncovering tales of its role in transporting coal and lace.
We compared the canal to the River Trent and Amazon River, discussing how the canal is a man-made marvel, while the River Trent flows and Amazon River flow naturally.
Later on, we conducted a survey to observe and record the different types of people and transport passing us by on the busy canal and canal path. From cheerful boaters to cyclists whizzing through. The sheer diversity reminded us how active and vibrant our local area is.
