- The River Nar Geography Field Trip»
On Thursday 21st March Badger Class were joined by Kingfishers (Sporle) when they became true geographers and traced the river Nar from source to mouth!
The children's day began in Tittleshall, where we drew some field sketches of the source and complete a site survey of wild plants, birds and mammals. From here we followed the Nar, as close as we were able, to East Lexham where we viewed the lakes and were lucky enough to see some Mute Swans gliding about the water!
We continued to follow the river into Castle Acre and headed on foot down to the ford to see the changes that had taken place in the river's size and current. We were also able to walk along the meanders back into the village and see the different landsacpe that surrounded the Nar. The children made some excellent observations when comparing this with the source. Obviously, whilst at the ford, we couldn't resist a moment of 'pooh stick' races and a little paddle too!
After leaving Castle Acre we made our way back into Narborough and visited the Bone Mill where, yet again, the children were delighted to be able to view this magnificant piece of our local history. There was much fun had and excitement to view all the archaeological finds stored there for public viewing.
