Year 11 Geographers 'rock' their way to Dorset

There is no better place on earth to explore Geography than at a UNESCO world heritage site.  So this October some of the year 11 Geography students were given the chance to do just that as we headed to Dorset and the Jurassic Coast.

Day one found us trekking across the cliffs from Lulworth Cove to Durdle Door and even though the climb was steep we learnt some fantastic Geology songs that kept us all smiling!  Day two was spent in and out of the River Wey collecting data for our controlled assessment projects and chasing plastic ducks.  Day three took us in to Swanage and Studland Bay where we investigated tourism and coastal management.  It was also a good opportunity to buy sticks of rock and eat fish and chips.

Amongst all the Geography work there were also opportunities for lots of team building fun. My favourite memories include hiding in the bin playing Ambush, watching the IBot take on the Dominator in a game of Robot Wars and being completely awestruck at all the brave people who conquered the Zip Wire – especially a very muddy, shaky Dariyen.

All in all, a brilliant Geography Field Trip!
