Trip to Oxford
On Thursday 17th June, 20 LV and 5 UIV went to the Natural History Museum, Oxford, to explore the theme of Evolution and Adaptation and the importance of Darwin's research in developing a theory of evolution. After a couple of hours exploring the museum and marvelling at the exhibits on show, the girls had lunch followed by a brisk walk to the Botanical Garden. At the garden, the girls were given a brief talk on the importance of such gardens and its use in modern research and then they looked in the greenhouses containing specialist plants such as alpines, carnivorous, ferns and plants from arid countries and tropical rain forests. Luckily the sun shone all day!
