Year 7 Biology visit to the London Wetland Centre

Posted: 07/06/18

Last week the Biology department took Year 7 girls to the London Wetland Centre to study wildlife in this urban oasis.

This nature reserve is home to over 180 species, including kingfishers, sand martins, bitterns and yellow wagtails. The girls spent time reflecting on the purpose and benefits of creating wetlands, identifying birds and noting down their observable features, and creating beautiful biological drawings. The girls also had the opportunity to experience pond dipping – studying all the interesting aquatic creatures they could catch with their nets and evaluating the cleanliness of the water based on their results. The day was very educational and relaxing, and allowed the girls to put their drawing and observational skills into practice.
