The boys used sweep nets to catch wildlife

Earlier this week, 29 GCSE science pupils from Year 10 travelled to Hyde Park to visit the LookOut Education Centre as part of the Royal Parks Foundation.

At the small nature sanctuary in the middle of the largest park in London, the boys carried out studies on marine life. They observed the water meadow there and used field work equipment such as sweep nets and quadrats to catch organisms. After they caught them outside, they moved inside to use microscopes and laptops to identify and measure the miniature organisms.

As well as small organisms, they boys caught a variety of insects and pond life such as grasshoppers and newts. Their findings tie into their biology coursework, looking at the natural life cycles of wildlife.
