Geography Field Trip
Year 8 pupils enjoyed a visit to Stratford-upon-Avon to undertake primary data collection for their geographical study on tourism. Fieldwork is an essential aspect of geography that will facilitate students to enrich their locational knowledge and environmental understanding. It is an important component of geography at both KS3 and GCSE level.
The visit allowed pupils to collect data to investigate various impacts of tourism in the town. Pupils gained experience of five different fieldwork methods including pedestrian counts, land use surveys and environmental quality assessments. The results gained were of high quality and are going to be very interesting to present and analyse back in the classroom over the next few weeks. The pupils worked extremely hard during the visit and were a credit to the School.
