This week, we have focused on all things Wigan!
We researched different things including: canals, locks, habitats around the canal, uses and lots more. We really enjoyed learning about how and why canals were built.
Towards the middle of the week, we were lucky enough to go down to the canal with Neil and Katie, from Canal and River Trust, and help with a lock opening and closing. In the afternoon, they came to school and we built a model canal and talked more about how and why canals were used.
In Art, we used our research to create some canal boat artwork to display in our exhibitions.
We may have watched a little episode of Rosie and Jim too!
