Year 5 visited Wicken Fen as part of work on the topic of Water.  Everyone said they enjoyed the day very much and could explain several new things they’d learned.  This is a report from one of the Year 5s:

‘ First we had safety tips then we went on the board walk, over a series of bridges, and learnt about the geography of the fens.  After a break, we visited the Fen Cottage and workshops and learnt about the history of Fen people.  We found out they were quite small, that they caught their own food and baked bread every day.  Finally we went pond dipping and found lots of creatures, including one that the activity leader hadn’t see before. ‘
