Llangollen Horse Drawn Boat Trip

Hedgehog Class enjoyed a trip along Llangollen Canal on a horse drawn boat today. The shire horse who pulled us was called Harley. We all thought that he must be really strong to pull us all along on the boat! The trip was to help us learn more about boats and how they have changed over time. As we waited for our trip to start, the children impressed the adults by naming the different parts of the boat such as the bow, stern and keel. We also looked at what materials the barge was made from. When we got back to school we started designing our boats that we are going to make ready for our class boat race down the river in a few weeks time.
