Epping Forest Field Centre

Epping Forest School Trip

Yesterday, on the 4th of December 2018, all the Year 5 and 6 classes went Epping Forest Field Centre in High Beech for a school trip. Some of the children traveled in the mini-bus and some were bought by their parents.  When we arrived all of the class went to separate rooms.

During the day we had three activities.  The first one was when we went out into the forest and learnt about what the ground is made from and how this affects how the water runs off the land.  We got to feel soil from the top of the hill and from lower down, which is clay.  We also saw the source of Loughton Brook, which was just a little trickle.   

After lunch, we went back into the forest and explored Loughton Brook further; downstream and upstream. At each location we measured the width and depth, the water speed and we analysed the shape and size of the pebbles we found on the bed of the brook.

It was an awesome day because we got to explore Loughton Brook in our wellingtons and learn more about how to do geography field work.
