Year 8 visit Kew Gardens

June 10th, 2014

IMG_0252On Monday year 8 Geographers visited Kew Gardens in London to investigate Tropical Rainforests. Pupils competed in a scavenger hunt in the Palm Greenhouse where they explored what the climate feels like, as well as searching for cool plants that are used as ingredients in everyday items, such as toothpaste. Pupils walked along the Xstrata Treetop Walkway where they had a view of the rainforest and the park 18 metres high off the ground. In the afternoon, pupils took part in a selfie challenge where they searched for different features and zones within the park and took a picture of themselves to prove they had visited all ten. These included smelling a rose in the Rose Garden, at the Japanese Pagoda, and at Waterlily House.
