S1 Science Pupils have been out of school during some lessons this week undertaking fieldwork in Dunain Woods. Pupils in 1K reflected on their work and their are photos of all classes below.
On the 22nd of May 2013 class 1K went to Dunain Woods. It was a lovely sunny day when we left school on the mini bus.
We worked in partners to follow the map along the Great Glen Way, which had landmarks and trees marked on it so we could find the answers to the activities we had to do.
We had to find different types of leaves and collect samples to identify them. We also had to look at the view of Inverness to identify where four landmarks of Inverness were on our map and find the grid references to gain points in the quiz. We also had to collect different colours of things from nature.
On our way up the hill we saw a Buzzard swooping over the field in front of us. When walking through the forest we had to be careful not to stand on the Primroses because they are a protected species of plant.
At the top of the hill it started to rain but it did not last long enough to spoil a fun and great trip.
