Year 12 Geographers have spent 4 days at the Cranedale centre in Yorkshire recently, learning fieldwork techniques to help them prepare for their NEA (Non Examination Assessment), fieldwork investigation which is worth 20% of their final exam grade. On Wednesday they travelled to Flamborough to collect data on erosion, sediment size and beach profiles. Thursday they visited Scarborough to investigate the character of Place. On Friday students compared infiltration and river variables in two contrasting drainage basins and on the last day they studied the factors influencing urban microclimates. Despite an early start, lots of travelling and sessions in the lab until 8.30pm, everyone had a very productive and enjoyable time!
