Several activities at Leeson House including Enigma Orienteering, Sing songs, Digging for Victory and Air Raid Practise. Groups could even arrive by Steam Train from Corfe Castle!
Visit Leeson to find out what lies beneath the murky waters of our ponds. Look out for Great Crested Newts, Dragonfly Larvae and Water Scorpions! Focus on their adaptations, use of keys and food chains.
Have a pic nic lunch followed by hunting for minibeasts or something very different like orienteering!
Example A Level Biology Day VisitVisit Studland Sand Dunes to study vegetation succession. Students will carry out interrupted belt transects to investigate the environmental changes and biotic differences across the dunes. Abiotic and biotic data will be collected and groups can then travel the 10 mins back to Leeson House for data analysis.
