Y2 Walk to Chat Moss & Moss Farm Fisheries

Lesson: Geography

Class: Year 2 Year: 2019 - 2020

Year 2 are learning about Salford Our City and we have begun local with learning all about Chat Moss.

We enjoyed a fantastic morning in the sunshine! Walking up and over the bridge to visit Moss Farm Fisheries.

Everyone had a fantastic time exploring the fisheries and looking around it with Lorna & Alan, who were our hosts there. Year 2 had to complete a challenge looking for geese, deer, mallard ducks, frogs, barn owls and other signs of animals and habitats. 

We had a good talk about the fisheries and how the fish are hibernating for winter as well as exploring the land that we were on - The potatoes that are grown on the walk over the bridge to the fisheries are used to make Walkers Crisps! 

Today's visit has helped bring our science and geography learning to life and make a new community link to the fisheries, which was just a 20 minute walk away from school. The children were amazing as usual and were ready for their snack when they got back to school!
