Y7 trip to Wakehurst Place

Year 7 had their annual trip to Kew @ Wakehurst Place last Friday and basked in wonderful sunshine as they explored two contrasting aquatic environments and studied several areas of woodland that had been coppiced. The day is very full and quite physically demanding, but all the pupils got straight down to work and collected some excellent data. In school this week, the pupils have been analysing the data, images and developing questions that were raised whilst at Wakehurst Place.
  • My favourite organism was a water mite because it is very small and looks see through: Seth 7M
  • We went to Wakehurst Place to study reed beds and rivers, looking for different aquatic invertebrates from miniscule water mites to large caddis fly larvae: Tommy 7D
  • One of my favourite parts of the trip was seeing the different ways that each organism swam. My favourite was the Greater Water Boatman because it swam like it was relaxing in a pool: Jasper 7D
  • It was really cool to see how the creatures moved and actually how detailed their bodies are: Jimmy 7D
  • By using nets we fished out small water invertebrates. My group caught the biggest caddisfly larvae our Wakehurst guide had seen: Ella 7D
  • I learnt that the conditions of the water like temperature, water clarity, pH and depth can all affect the way creatures live: Elodie 7D
