Year 12 Geography students complete field work in East Yorkshire

Last week, Year 12 A level Geography students embarked on a journey to East Yorkshire to complete four days of field work. 

We spent time on the beach, observing coastal processes and landforms, and investigating beach characteristics. 

It was interesting to see how coastal erosion was being managed and to consider the impact climate change may have in future years on this rapidly disappearing coastline.

One day was spent in not so sunny Scarborough investigating place characteristics and how Scarborough has changed over time.

Despite torrential rain, it did not put us off our fish and chips but no one was tempted by an ice cream.

As well as allowing us to see the theory we have learnt about in class in the real world, the trip taught us how to carry out our own independent investigations which are part of our A Level.

Despite the chilly weather and challenging work, we had a great time and forged amazing memories.

The Geography students would like to thank Miss Tomkinson and Mr Newbury for accompanying and putting up with them on the trip.
