On Monday 26 September 2016, Year 11 went on a Biology field trip for the day to Suntrap Education Centre in Epping Forest. The purpose of this trip was to gain practical experience of Ecological sampling techniques as part of their GCSE Science studies. The day was divided into three sections: 1. Pond sampling, 2. Plant sampling and 3. Animal handling.
The day re-enforced learning about key concepts in many areas of Biology including Ecology, Human Impact on the Environment and Organism Adaptations.
Pupils had the opportunity to handle many organisms including a chicken, a corn snake and a bearded dragon.
