Y10 GCSE Geography Field Work

In preparation for their Unit 3 Geographical Applications Exam, 160 Y10 GCSE Geographers have taken part in 2 days worth of field work in the last month.

Miss Wales reports:

First up was the day trip to Leeds to focus on human geography.  Students walked 4 miles from the outskirts of Leeds back to the train station comparing and contrasting the West Park and Hyde Park areas of the city using techniques such as questionnaires, environmental quality surveys and land use mapping.

Students have also experienced physical geography field work with a half day trip to Red Beck in Frizinghall.  We were investigating to what extent Bradshaw’s model could be applied to Red Beck in terms of changing river characteristics downstream. 

The weather was glorious and once again the students were a credit to BGS. Well done Year 10!
