A few weeks ago the 2 sets in Upper Sixth Biology were taken to Wicken Fen Field Studies Centre to carry out Ecological practical work part of their A2 coursework.

The activities comprised a study using random quadrats to estimate percentage cover in 2 different land ecosystems, pond dipping to assess the number of organisms living in an aquatic medium, a boardwalk to look at stages in ecological succession and OCR Students did a practice for their U6 Assessment on Leaf variation in a terrestrial plant.

Students had a fantastic day and collected data for their reports.
