Vocation Group 1 Poole Farm November 2016

This week 6 Year 10 students visited Poole Farm to do a spot of environmental management. The group were coppicing some Ash sapplings to thin them out and improve the habitat. They learnt about what tools are required to do the job and also the how to use them safely. As we were undertaking the task we learnt about why it is important to manage the wild spaces to ensure there is enough variety to support a diversity of species. We ended up cutting down well over twenty sapplings and clearing back the gorse and brambles. The weather was really kind to us, lovely blue skies and it got quite warm. The group worked really hard and looked like they were enjoying using up some of their excess energy.
