Geog­ra­phy trip to Canterbury

Humanitiestrip200pxThe entire Geog­ra­phy group in Year 11 were taken to Can­ter­bury in order to com­plete their field­work for their con­trolled assess­ment. The groups boarded the bus in high spir­its just after 9 in the morn­ing and enjoyed their jour­ney on the dou­ble decker into the City. Once in place the group were split into two and both got going with their work com­par­ing the White­fri­ars area of the City and that of the West­gate Tow­ers. Mr Sellen and I had the ardu­ous task of ensur­ing they com­pleted all work to the best of their abil­ity, the biggest chal­lenge proved to be to encour­age the ask­ing of sur­veys to the gen­eral pub­lic! The stu­dents did a num­ber of tasks at each site, pedes­trian counts, bipo­lar assess­ments, sketch maps, shop­ping tally charts etc. After lunch the groups swapped over and by now bud­ding with expe­ri­ence com­pleted their sec­ond site in record time. The groups were bril­liant and a credit to the school!!
