GCSE Fieldwork Trip

126 GCSE Geography students had the opportunity to immerse themselves in the world of Human and Physical Geography beyond the classroom with two days of fieldwork trips to the River Chess and Milton Keynes earlier this month.

With some students wearing wellies for the first time, the River Chess proved to be an exciting first experience. With the aim of investigating their classroom learning of physical geography and how a river changes downstream, students set off with their metre sticks, clipboards and cork floats. Despite the fear of a yellow weather warning and thunderstorms the night before, the weather was kind and we even got some blue skies.

Slightly further afield in Milton Keynes students were aiming to investigate how quality of life changes within a city. Students were given the opportunity to explore a range of diverse areas and talk to local residents and business owners about where they live and work. One of the most difficult decisions of the day was choosing what to have for lunch - Wagamamas and Nandos proved to be clear favourites!

We would like to commend our GCSE Geography students for their curiosity, enthusiasm and nature in which they conducted themselves representing St Clement Danes on both trips and have had some amazing feedback from the public.

We would also like to take this chance to thank our amazing staff who volunteered their time to help us run such a successful fieldwork trip.
