In March, Year 5 visited How Hill for a 3-day residential trip.  We have enjoyed a number of fantastic activities.

We also enjoyed walking around the nature trail to learn about the different habitats including the dry woodland, the wet woodland and the marshes.

We went on a boat ride along the river.  We visited a bird hide over Reedham Water, and we also visited a drainage mill on the marsh.
