All: Welcome to our presentation

Abii: Our aim was too- To capture the varying landscape and features of the area, then
research why they are there and the history of the area and features found, as you can see
on the board.
terrible weather. We had torrential rain that started whilst we waited for Sholeh to arrive
and didnt really relent until much later in the afternoon. Although, we had lovely sun when
we arrived at the campsite, which felt like a nice welcome to us.
Eliza: We also walked through at least 2 thunder and lightening storms, which was quite
scary, especially as we were walking through the forest during the first one, but we
perservered and got through it.
Freya: As you can see, it wasnt really the most ideal weather conditions to be walking
through, but we did find shelter in time for lunch. Unfortunately, some of our stuff was
soaking wet by the time we arrived at the campsite, as were we, but some warm food soon
warmed us, as did the sun we were lounging in. Due to weather, we couldnt get pictures of
some things however we saw them and researched them anyway.
Ihssen: Our second part of our aim was the landscape and as the cotoswolds were an area of
outstanding natural beauty, this wasnt hard. The National Nature Reserve is made up of five
sites managed by Natural England: Rough Park, Buckholt Wood, Cranham Common,
Sheepscombe Common and Edge Common or as its now called Rudge Hill. Also there are five
jointly managed with the National Trust: Workmans Wood, Saltridge Common Wood, Lords
and Ladys Wood, Blackstable Wood and Popes Wood.
Roshni: The grasslands of the commons feature a rich limestone flora including yellow rattle,
knapweed, harebell and wild thyme. The early summer sees an impressive display of early
purple orchids, pyramidal orchids, greater butterfly orchids, common spotted orchids and
fragrant orchids, along with many other different types.
Sholeh: The beech woodlands are host to plants including green hellebore, common
wintergreen, bird's-nest orchid and broad-leaved helleborine. A number of nationally rare
plants also occur, including fingered sedge, stinking hellebore and yellow star-of-bethlehem,
making these woods even more special than they already are.
Abii: Butterflies including silver-washed fritillary and, less commonly, white-letter hairstreak
are all part of the beach woodlands animals, which also include rare snails and spiders.
Breeding birds include tawny owl, buzzard and wood warbler. All these animals are
restricted to their ancient woodland sites. Buckholt Wood is especially noted for being home
to over 780 species of fungi.
Claire: Now about the uncommon wild service tree. It was largely confined to ancient
woodland. The trees can grow to 25 meters in height have greyish, brown, flaky bark. The
leaves have 6-10 pointed lobes slightly similar to field maple. The tree is easiest to spot in
autumn, due to its vivid red leaves and unusual brown berries. When the berries were over
ripe, they were used to make an alcoholic drink called Chequers. This is why some people
call it the Chequers Tree.
Eliza: Who knows, we probably walked past all these rare and amazing sights, without even
knowing what they were. Now here are some more facts about the landscape for you to
read.Our next part of the aim was flowers and we start with the thistle. The thistle is
sometimes called arduus arvensis or the Creeping Plurne Thistle or even Way Thistle. It has
many varieties and names. It can be found in cultivated fields and waste places. It is a very
common plant and as a result has been used for over 2000 years. It is used as a herbal
remedy for ailments such as liver, kidney, and gall bladder problems.
Freya:. Several scientific studies suggest that substances in thistle protect the liver from
toxins, including certain drugs such as acetaminophen or Tylenol, this can cause liver
damage in high doses. Another chemical has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties,
and it may help the liver repair itself by growing new cells; Truly amazing in a common plant.
The next plant is the willow herb, which is mainly found in marshes, disturbed soil and other
moist environments.
Ihssen: The willow herb has been used as a medicine and as food It is used to treat prostate
problems, bladder problems, bedwetting, gastrointestinal disorder, diarrhoea, mouth
lesions, kidney disorders and bladder disorders. It is traditionally eaten as a medicine, so oral
use. Our next plant is the clover, which is a herb plant of the pea family, with very fragrant
Roshni: Typically, the clover has 3 leaves, but very rarely there is the famed 4 leaf clover,
which is seen as a sign for good luck. They grow in most temperate and subtropical
regions, apart South-East Asia and Australia. Our next plant is the wild geranium, which
are typically found in temperate and subtropical regions. It is a member of the genus
Geranium, which are a family of shrubs and herbs. Typically, they have pink, purple and
white flowers. The flowers are regular with free petals, twice as many stamens and
sepals. The fruit is a usual 1- seeded lobed capsule, but occasionally the seeds separate.
Sholeh: Their long, beak-shaped fruits give them the popular names crane's-bill, heron's-
bill and stork's-bill. Geraniums are beautiful flowers and often sold in bouquets or as
plants. They also have aromatic oils which extracted from their leaves and flowers for
use in flavourings and perfumes. They are also used to treat thrush, diarrhea and piles.
Here is some information on dry stone walls for you to read. Thank you very much for
watching and a thank you or no thank you on putting this terrible picture of us in the
school events for 2013-2014!
