On Friday 4 March, three Year 8 houses went to Kew Gardens for an exciting trip, learning about plants and biodiversity.

There were many different greenhouses that we visited. However, the one that most stuck in my mind was the palm house:

The palm house had lots of different types of exotic plants from all over the world. The treetop walk was also an unforgettable experience.

In the afternoon, we were given a workshop on biodiversity and the importance of organisms to the others around them. We studied plants and small invertebrates that we found in a grassland and an orchard.

The orchard was much more biodiverse because it had more different species and variety. The workshop taught us how important it is to keep the biodiversity of our world but climate change and fossil fuel emissions are destroying the diverse community that we live in.
