Lower 6 pupils Explore The River Dee.



Lower 6 headed out all geared up in their waterproofs and hiking boots to some of Scotland’s most beautiful landscapes to walk, experiment, learn, explore, and appreciate the greatness of the outdoors that we have on our doorstep.

This allowed us to look at the River Dee at its three different stages.  Firstly we headed to Linn O’Dee to look at the river at its source.  Later, we visited Glen Tanar to look at one of the Dee’s tributaries.  Finally, we hiked the children around Aberdeen following the Dee as close to its mouth as we could. The pupils took the opportunity to use the Dee inspiring them to paint, write and film documentaries. It has been an absolute fantastic study and opportunity for the children to have hands on experience in some geographical studies of one of Aberdeen’s main rivers.
