Urban Nature: Aquatic Life

Sarehole Mill

  • Capacity: 30
  • Duration: 4 hours
  • Cost (per pupil): £9.50
Book Session

Explore the biodiversity of the pond, stream and River Cole at Sarehole Mill looking for different species to learn about water quality. This session is offered as a full day trip.

Students will take part in collecting samples from each aquatic environment and examine their finds. Together we will then come up with ideas to improve urban water courses.

We will also explore the impact of trees in the urban environment using the Woodland Realm next to the Mill Pond. Students will learn about their importance as a habitat through exploration of the animals that live in and around them.

This workshop supports numerous elements of the Science curriculum in particular supporting students understanding of ‘Working Scientifically’.
