Well, despite the threat of rain and the occasional burst of rain, we had a productive and enjoyable day. The train journey was speedy and after a snack in the square we were ready for action.
The children plucked up all their courage and asked people who were walking in Rams Walk why they were in Petersfield, where they lived and whether they would live in Petersfield or Liss if they were to move.
Most people were friendly and helpful- they gave us some interesting comments.
We did traffic survey in the square and were amazed at how many vehicles and pedestrians we saw, compared to the survey in Liss.
We went to the Heath for lunch and sketched trees afterwards.
The local wildlife kept us entertained…
And then we went on a habitat hunt in the Physic Garden.
Thank you to Mrs Stirling, Mrs Gosney and Mrs Cuthbertson for accompanying us and making the trip smooth running- It’s much appreciated!
Now we will be in a better position to fulfil our role as Geography detectives an help the Black family decide which location suits their needs better- Liss or Petersfield?
