Nature Thrives in an Urban Landscape
Peters, Henricus
Primary Science, n113 p19-20 May-Jun 2010
In this article, the author describes how a cemetery in East London provides a haven for wildlife and a gem for children to explore. Children from Woolmore School in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets are visiting the cemetery on a class outing as part of a wider whole-school experience. Throughout the whole visit children are encouraged to ask questions, look under things, listen for birdcalls, touch everything and generally explore and investigate. The questions the children are asking are not concerned with investigating the graves, but the biodiversity in the cemetery.
