Improving the Environment in Year 4.

Lyonsdown School’s Year 4 students learned all about improving the environment during their Geography trip to the Affinity Study Centre in Bushey this term. They even made their own recycled paper!

Earlier in the Year, students also visited St. Margaret’s School Independent School in Bushey, for a day specifically about the environment.

“Although it rained we had a great time. We enjoyed identifying mini beasts from the pond and using keys to identify woodland plants.

At break time we were given a lovely treat of hot chocolate and chocolate brownies and later, after lunch, we were each given a tasty fruit cocktail.
Next, came the scavenger hunt. This was great fun but some of the clues were really hard! We divided into four teams and each team chose its own name. Our teams were called:
• Daisy Dilemma
• Nature Hunters
• Naughty Newts
• ADLS Oak

This competition ended in a draw between the Naughty Newts and ADLS Oaks.
Our science teachers for the day were called Mr. and Mrs. Anderson: and yes, they are married! They were fantastic and made each activity fun and interesting.
Ms. Crick looked after us throughout the day and she was very kind to everyone.
We all learnt a lot and we would like to thank Charlotte, Angel, Som and Florence from the sixth form for helping us throughout the day.”
