Year 12 Biology students enjoy field visit
Over a sunny weekend in June, the Year 12 Biology students took part in a residential ecology field course that visited the moorland at Danby, the rocky shore at Runswick Bay and the sand dunes at Redcar.
The students worked long days in the field collecting data which we processed and analysed in the evenings.
Jess Williams, Year 12 student, said: “I found that the Biology was not only fun but very useful in helping the class to understand Ecology. We went up to the moorlands and to the beaches to look at different species in those areas and by doing this, we were able to clearly see a change in species and explain why it was occurring. After our days out, we went back to East Barnby (where we were staying) and did a little bit of classwork before we had some free time.”
Rob Haye, Lead Teacher for Science, said: “This trip opens up a different aspect of Biology to the students, showing that it is not all lab-based. It was great to be able to return to a residential visit in such stunning locations.”
