Little Ouse Welcomes Hopton Primary School

We were visited by Oak Class from Hopton Primary School in mid-June. The group of 21 year 3/4 pupils (aged 7-9), enjoyed the morning learning more about their local river. They heard where the water in the Little Ouse flowed to and what had made it so silty. They saw the cattle grazing the surrounding fenland and watched the brightly coloured Banded Demoiselle Damselflies flitting about the river. They enjoyed looking at the river bugs that had been caught from Snails, to Damselfly larvae, Cased Caddis and even some small Fish.

On the way back they stopped to do some drawings about their river visit and ended the session with a game of pooh sticks. LOHP Conservation Manager - Ellie Beach said 'It was nice to have our local school come and visit us and learn about what is on their doorstep. Hopefully these will be the next generation of nature lovers'. Hopton Primary School Teacher Mrs Jones said, 'The children really enjoyed their morning and have not stopped talking about it, thank you to LOHP and their volunteers for making it happen'
