Lower Senior Geographers in the Lakes
Last week Lower Senior Geographers spent 3 days in the Lake District as part of their GCSE studies. They undertook an investigation into changing river velocity downstream in very difficult weather conditions with unrelenting rain and cool temperatures. However in much more clement, though not very Spring-like, weather they measured the impact of footpath erosion in Easedale. And then made like a glacier and came back down the valley learning about the erosional and depositional glacial landforms before indulging in ice-creams and gingerbread in Grasmere. Finally they completed an in depth case study of flooding and flood defences in Keswick. Well done to all those involved for working so hard and learning so much.
