River studies

"Adam was fantastic start to finish with our project. He prepared thoroughly beforehand and ensured that the children had a great day. He ensured through his enthusiasm that the children were keen to learn about different invertebrates found in a river, as well as having practical experience of measuring the speed and depth of rivers."

"I would certainly recommend Adam to anyone!"

Mr Jones, Deputy Headteacher, Crab Lane Community Primary School, Blackley, Manchester
