Year 5 and 6 visited Stratfield Brake on Monday as part of their Local Study in Geography. They identified the human and physical geographical features on route to the woodland area that is situated on the southern edge of the village. Pupils then followed their maps and made sketches and took photos of the various landmarks within the nature reserve.

As well as locating the geographical features of the area, there was plenty of wildlife to enjoy as the area is a natural habitat for many species of birds and plants. Some children even spotted a muntjac deer! After lunch, the children enjoyed a well-deserved play on the huge sports field which we had all to ourselves. It was a wonderful day out in the fresh air and the children behaved beautifully. Here are some photos of our trip:
