River Trips

The past week has seen our Year 10 Geography GCSE students don their wellies to investigate fluvial processes along the River Wyre. As part of the new GCSE Syllabus all Geography students must investigate a human and physical issue to be able to discuss in their Unit 3 exam.

Despite the ominous looking weather the rain held off for what turned out to be 3 productive days investigating the extent to which the River Wyre supported the Bradshaw Model. We also took the opportunity to look at and evaluate  the river management systems in place at Garstang.

The students worked together brilliantly and collected a vast range of data which is being analysed in lessons at the moment.

The Geography students will go to Liverpool in the Autumn term to investigate the regeneration of the city centre and docklands area.
