Year 10 Geography Fieldwork

GCSE Geography students recently swapped the comfort of their classrooms for Withernsea's bracing sea front as they made their way to the beach to conduct their GCSE fieldwork.

On Wednesday 5th July, 60 Year 10 students and their teachers spent time practising a wide range of geographical fieldwork skills and recording evidence of coastal processes in preparation for next summer's Issue Evaluation exam paper, which will test students on how they conduct a piece of fieldwork.
 
In a shared statement, members of the Geography team commented: ‘We are pleased with how hard the students worked to collect their data on the beach. We are very lucky to have the beach and the sea defences so close to us, which enable our students to see Geography in action. It is a fabulous way to learn about the subject first-hand.’
