Field trip for geography students
As part of their geography GCSE, Year 11 students have been studying rivers and completing fieldwork in Snowdonia.
As part of their geography GCSE, Year 11 students have been studying rivers and are currently working on a controlled assessment. As part of this students had to create their own hypothesis, research on their field trip to Snowdonia before drawing conclusions.
Field work took place over four days in Snowdonia. Yeukai who has a passion for Geography really enjoyed the trip: “The fieldwork was really fun and I enjoyed using different equipment to capture information about the river. My hypothesis included looking at the velocity of the river and how the land forms alongside it. Now we’re back at the UTC, I’m analysing my data and writing my final report.”
Fellow student Hashavyah also enjoyed the trip: “We got to climb a mountain and met a mountain farmer, he gave us real insight into life in farming, especially in such tough conditions. I really enjoyed climbing the mountain as it gave us a real sense of how diverse the landscape is, and we could see how local people live alongside nature.”
