Time To Clean Up!

This week, we spent some time in Hetton town centre picking up litter and analysing the main types of rubbish in our local area. We then made our way to Hetton Burn to take part in a river fly sampling activity where we observed the creatures in the water. As we found fresh water shrimp and a cased caddis fly, we determined that the pollution was moderate to low level. Finally, we enjoyed some free time in the park and an ice lolly to cool off! It was a fun day had by all and the staff were so proud of us!
