Year 7 Students Science Hauxley Nature Reserve

Jun 15

There was much excitement on Tuesday 7th June when our Year 7 students headed to Hauxley Nature Reserve for a Science field trip.

The BBC was also in the area to film Springwatch, and though we didn’t quite make it onto TV screens this time around, students did have fantastic fun hunting for mini beasts, learning about bird behaviour and doing some bird spotting of their own.

After the long pause due to COVID restrictions, staff and students thoroughly enjoyed getting back outdoors for the hands-on learning experience.

The staff at Hauxley Nature reserve were fantastic at welcoming and engaging students and the fair weather held.

Alan Carter, Assistant Director of Science, said: “The Year 7 students thoroughly enjoyed the day, and after two years without such trips, being able to experience Science in the real world was something we all appreciated. Students had the opportunity to see some spectacular local wildlife, including rare orchids and a family of deer. Special thanks go to all the staff at Hauxley Nature reserve for their warm welcome.”
