On 6 February, the Year 8 pupils travelled by train to Norfolk for a three day geography fieldtrip to study the effectiveness of the coastal defence schemes.
Photographs were taken, sketches drawn and various measurements taken and analysed back in the computer lab in the field study centre, Overstrand Hall.
The boys worked independently and collaboratively in order to gather as much evidence as possible to support their conclusions.
Currently, they are in the process of writing up their findings and evaluating the investigation process. The resulting course work will be submitted to the boys’ senior schools and will contribute towards their final exam grade.
The boys worked diligently in spite of the biting wind and covering of snow on the ground.
In between the hard work, they enjoyed some team games and a campfire. On the last morning before heading home there was time to ride the centre’s quad bikes and try out the high ropes.
All in all, a very successful and enjoyable occasion.
