Key Stage One Visit Bude canal

As part of their geography and history learning, Elm, Beech and Sycamore Class visited Bude Canal. 


The children met with Chris from the Bude Canal Society who told them all about the history of the canal (and why it was built). He then explained how the canal was accessed and used. 
The children then walked along the canal, observing the geographical features, to the bird hide to see what wildlife lives along, and in, the canal – this was led by another member of the BCS – Peter (whose mum used to work at Holsworthy Primary). He also told the children about the history of some of the buildings along the canal side. 


The children then enjoyed lunch and a play in the park.
