Year 7 students visit Kew Gardens and Hampton Court Palace

Year 7 students enjoyed an interesting and informative day yesterday when they visited Kew Gardens and Hampton Court Palace, as part of their history and geography curriculum.

One hundred and eight geography students visited Kew Gardens to learn about the value of the rainforest ecosystem. Students had a fascinating day studying the plants of the rainforest, and followed a process of scientific/geographical enquiry, investigating their adaptation and relationships with people. Students also learned about key conservation challenges that the world faces.

A further one hundred students visited Hampton Court Palace. Students had an opportunity to experience the many facets of the magnificent palace, experiencing the sights, sounds and smells of royal life in Tudor England. The visit was designed to enhance student understanding of key components of the History National Curriculum, including Tudor life in England and the impact this dynasty had on changing England in Early Modern Europe.
