Year 8 have been studying rivers

Year 8 have been studying rivers and in yesterday's lesson we decided to go and get some first-hand knowledge of our local stream - La Petite Gryonne. Its flow varies greatly with the seasons and its steep valley is where all the snow is dumped when the streets of Villars are cleared after heavy snowfalls. The students understood a great deal more by looking at the river features 'in the field' as well as in the classroom. They also saw first-hand how humans can have an impact on natural features. For the return to La Garenne, they were given the choice  - a short, steep slope or a longer, more gentle one. They unanimously chose the steep slope. 
 It was great to see the whole class rising to the challenge!
