Year 7 Geography fieldwork
Posted on: Friday 02nd December 2016
The previous night, ground temperatures reached -7oC, but on Thursday 1st December, 60 Year 7 pupils went to Margam Discovery Centre where they carried out a river study, measuring the width, depth and velocity of the Nant Philip river. The pupils investigated two sites along the course of the river. One towards the source and the other nearer the mouth. The pupils applied their numeracy skills as they collected their data in the field and when back in the warmth of the classroom they analysed their data, comparing the sites to see how the river changes along its course. There was even a sighting of Santa feeding the deer to top off a very enjoyable day!
