Y13 Geography NEA Field Trip
/ Categories: News
Monday, 4 to Friday, 8 November 2019
Last week four Year 13 Geographers travelled up to Grange-Over-Sands to complete fieldwork for their NEA coursework.
For the first couple of days, they studied practical fieldwork techniques in urban areas of Grange and Morecambe, and in a post-glacial environment of Coniston Coppermines valley. Despite the cold and (sometimes) rain, they all kept up great spirits walking up and down mountains!
Wednesday evening was spent planning a study of their own, which (despite the late night on Wednesday) they all carried out on Thursday in the urban area of Morecambe. Their study areas included a range of regeneration strategies that have been put into place in Morecambe and looking at differences in the levels of deprivation in different areas.
All four students got a lot out of the trip, looking at concepts they have studied class in a real life context, and collecting their data ready to write up some great pieces of coursework!
A huge thank you to the FSC Castle Head where we stayed, and our tutor Mel for all of her help and support!
