Geography Trip to Yorkshire

Pupils study beautiful River Derwent

On Friday 23 November, fifteen Year 13 IB Geography pupils travelled to Malton in North Yorkshire in order to complete their coursework in the field.

Over the weekend, pupils measured the downstream change along the River Derwent on the North York Moors which included a complicated set of measurements including width, depth, velocity, sediment size and shape. Their evenings were spent documenting their findings and pulling together their coursework.

All pupils worked very hard in showery conditions that thankfully weren't too cold. Water levels were higher than in previous years, so at a couple of sites only one group, led by the School Monitors, were able to enter the river safely.

All pupils had a productive and enjoyable Geography trip.
