On Monday, Year 9 had a geography related visit to Wroxham and Hoveton.
The day began with a two-hour boat trip from Wroxham, complete with skipper and a very interesting and informative commentary.
The girls learned a lot about the diverse habitats in the Broads area, home to a huge variety of wildlife including the rare bittern and the swallowtail butterfly, unique to Norfolk. They heard how maintenance plays a vital role in ensuring the habitats are protected from reverting to woodland.
After the boat trip, the girls went into Wroxham itself and tried out some survey techniques they will be using in their GCSE studies next year: land use surveys, questionnaires and character scores.
A welcome ice-cream stop rounded things off nicely before returning to school!
