Kew Gardens Study Visit

Our Science department organised a study visit to Kew Gardens on Monday 13th June 2016.  Below is some feedback from one of the students who participated in this event.


On Monday 13th June a group of Year 7 and Year 8 Science students visited Kew Gardens.  We explored different plants and looked at some of the amazing ways in which they grow and some of the things that they do. We went into a huge greenhouse and saw plants that can make medicine, shelter and food.  We looked at plants that can cure cancer and ones that can be poisonous but helpful. We did a workshop on bees and found out fascinating facts about bees, for instance that honey is actually made form bee sick! Finally we learnt how plants adapt to suit their environment. I loved this visit because I learned so much.
