A River Study School Trip provides excellent in-sites into river bank wildlife and the natural eco river environment for your educational experience. Whether your class is studying geography, science, history or even learning about the environment, river studies can cover various aspects of the key-stage curriculum.

And what’s great about River Studies is that they can be found all over the country, regardless of your location. From Liverpool to Wales, Scotland to Gloucester, there’s a site for everyone! Whether its guided walks or discovering what wildlife lives beneath the surface, there are a number of activities that can be carried out at River sites that are not only fun but also highly educational. These activities include:

  • Foreshore Fieldwork (the study of collecting, identifying and observing fish and invertebrates).
  • Riverside Fieldwork (the recording of river features using a range of scientific equipment).
  • Riverside Trails (the exploration and observation of how the river environment has changed over time).
  • Bird-Spotting (the classification of birds into carnivores, herbivores and omnivores).
  • Historical Role Play (the investigation of historical river settlement).

River school trips also provide classes with a site of educational adventure that encourages exploration and promotes learning. Taking pupils out of the classroom and into the natural environment can have significant educational benefits. It brings excitement into the curriculum and increases motivation. After taking part in a River Study School Trip, students will come away with a greater understanding, and this will be reflected in their schoolwork. 

River sites are a fantastic educational tool, and they’re there just waiting for you to take advantage of them! Why not book yours today and take your class on a school trip they’ll never forget?
