Year 9 Biology Fieldwork at High Elms

This week, our Year 9 students went on an exciting fieldwork trip to High Elms in Bromley, where they had the opportunity to apply their classroom knowledge in a real-world setting. The focus of the trip was on learning sampling techniques using quadrats, a fundamental method in ecological studies.

During the trip, students worked diligently to estimate the population sizes of various wind-pollinated flowers. This hands-on experience not only deepened their understanding of ecological sampling but also provided valuable insights into the local biodiversity at High Elms.

The fieldwork was a fantastic way for our students to connect with nature and see the practical applications of their biology lessons. We’re delighted to see their enthusiasm and dedication to learning in such an engaging environment.
