Year 3 Visit Horton Kirby Education Centre

 

 

On Friday 30th September, both Year 3 classes went on an educational visit to Horton Kirby in Dartford as part of our geography topic on contrasting localities. We took part in a variety of exciting activities to identify similarities and differences of the human and physical geographical features of Horton Kirby and then compared them to our locality, Catford. After comparing, we made a visit to Farningham Village to look at different types of houses and really old buildings and made comparisons to our own. On our way, we stopped to sketch the bakery and the beautiful River Darent, which was quite interesting. Soon after, our guide Miss Jaanki and Miss Hannah took thirty BIG steps and asked us to count how much litter we saw on our way. Amazingly, we hardly noticed any. After this, we found somewhere safe to sit and then did a traffic survey. Unfortunately, we found out that there is much more traffic in Catford than in the village. When we returned to our classrooms, we were given some clay to make and create our own houses, inspired by the houses and buildings that we saw during the day. We had a fantastic day at Farningham Village and we hope to visit Horton Kirby Education Centre again in the future because we love learning outdoors.
