(Stop) messing about on the River!!

Our final excursion of the term saw S2 pupils testing out their river fieldwork skills at 3 points along the River Gryffe. For the first time ever the lower course was slow and shallow enough for us to get right across the channel and complete the sets of measurements that we needed.
The weather was so warm that nobody complained about getting wet, some made a point of getting as wet as possible! As usual on this trip we had a fantastic lunch at the 'Pullman' in Kilmacolm before completing our studies and emptying our wellies for a final time.

Amazonia hot hot!

Our final trip to Amazonia for S1 this session gave us a true taste of the Amazon as temperatures reached almost 30c combined with high humidity. The pupils all agreed that living in the Amazon rainforest would a challenge. We met all our favourite creatures and gave the snakes and tarantulas a big hug, a high five or just ran away from them to hide in a corner. Well done being brave S1!
