Last week, Year 11 geography students went on a field trip to collect data from the River Fynn. The aim was to collect as much data as possible to test the changes in the river channel.
We had to take a series of tests at multiple sites to create a set of data, measuring the depth, speed and cross section of the water. Once completed, we took our data back to school and produced graphs of our work. We had to
overcome obstacles during testing, battling against reeds and other plants to take our measurements.
When we were not taking tests we were embracing nature by producing field sketches of our surroundings. We are now looking forward to the trip into London for the human geography section of the course.
