Start the session with an overview of the Great Ouse, then walk down to the riverbank, where you divide into three groups, conducting a river survey, doing some river dipping and going on a boat ride.  Coach pick up is available near the Maltings.  Please note that the session goes ahead in all but the most extreme weather conditions so pupils should be encouraged to dress accordingly!
