Year 8: Geography Field Trip
The Year 8s left their classrooms and headed to the River Lymington in the New Forest to collect data for their practical fieldwork study.
Our budding geographers were put into small groups to observe and take note of elements such as velocity, discharge, wetted perimeter, cross-sectional area, depth and width. To find their readings the pupils used ranging poles, a clinometer, tape measures, and wine corks! They also analysed the sizes of stones to discover the effects of erosion.
Thank you to Mr. Lyddon for organising and leading a great day had by all.
