Easingwold Community Primary School Year 5/6 trip to Howsham Mill...

Saturday 9th March, 2024

On Thursday 29th February, the Easingwold Community Primary School class visited Howsham Mill near Malton. The aim was to conduct geography fieldwork as part of the class’ rivers topic.

The group had the exciting opportunity to stand on a viewing window directly above an enormous, fast-moving water wheel. The class learned about the course of the River Derwent, features of the river and the wildlife that may be spotted.

Students conducted an experiment to measure the velocity of the river at three chosen points, calculating the mean velocity and comparing the speeds.
