This morning, Year 5 and Year 3 had the chance to learn more about the moors!

Rachael joined us from the Moorland Discovery Center (based at the Longshaw Estate) and led us though activities to learn more about the rare habitat on our doorstep.

Did you know the UK is home to 75% of the World’s moorland habitat- it’s rarer than the tropical rain forests!Children used the Beaufort scale to assess the wind speed.

 They identified the clouds they could see.

 Children made dams to prevent soil runoff and erosion.
