Year 8 Geography Trip

Thursday 12 May 2022

Year 8 recently travelled to Dorset for an exciting Geography field trip.

On Wednesday they visited Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove to learn about formation of coastal processes. The weather was very kind to them and they had beautiful views from the coast.

The next day they headed into a river to investigate changes from source to mouth. Measuring velocity with rubber ducks was certainly a highlight! Everyone was very brave and had a go on the giant catapult swing back at the PGL centre before writing up their river project notes.

Spending the morning with exhilarating activities pupils mastered archery (some better than others!) and conquered their fears with a climbing wall challenge. Before heading home it was time for some human geography collecting data in Weymouth to assess advantages and disadvantages of tourism.
