Home Learning With the River Dee Trust

January 21, 2021

COVID has certainly thrown a spanner in the works of all the school visits we had planned this term! Not to be defeated, the Trust has been running virtual visits that are taking place in homes across Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire. We have been joining classes and their teachers (and sometimes parents and siblings) to share the wonderful world of the Dee through the magic of technology. We hope that we will be back in school playgrounds before too long but in the meantime, you can continue to learn about this rich and diverse habitat from the comfort of your home classroom.
