A trip to a Nottinghamshire nature reserve helped Year 12 biologists to collect vital data and practise their field work techniques to meet exam criteria.
The students carried out a transect line to gather details about the soil depth and growth of the plant, bird's foot trefoil. They also learned how to randomly sample a meadow and took part in a pond dip sampling polluted and clean water and looking at the organisms in each habitat.
Since the trip, students have completed a practical write up including analysis of their data, as well as writing conclusions and evaluating their methods.
Biology teacher Cat Clowes said: "The trip was successful as students got to see a Site of Special Scientific Interest which meant they could collect concrete and useful data about a habitat very different to the ones found around school.
"Students worked very hard despite very hot temperatures but this did mean they earned an ice cream after they finished their data collection!"
