Education

 
 

Our educational boat trips are specifically designed for parties of school students. Full commentary is provided by our knowledgeable guides and can be adapted to suit children of any age.

Shrewsbury and the River Severn provide a rich source of geographic, historic and natural history study material; we aim to provide an introduction to these topics and can adapt content to suit group requirements.

At the end of their visit students should have an appreciation of:

  • Why Shrewsbury was built on the River Severn
  • How the land along the River Severn has been used
  • How the River Severn was used for trade and transport
  • How the River Severn shaped the growth of industry in Shropshire
  • What are the cause and effects flooding and how we respond
  • What wildlife lives in the River Severn

Educational worksheets

These worksheets can either be used during the trip or back in the classroom to reinforce what has been learnt.
