Term 4

Geography field tripOver 40 Year 11 Geographers from Wykham Park Academy and Space Studio Banbury battled the elements, on Wednesday 13 March, to go to Amersham Field Centre and complete some vital coursework for their GCSEs.

The students were greeted by a member of staff for a talk about rivers and the different parts of this geographical feature.

All students then went to the source of the nearby river, measuring the width, depth and flow (velocity) using a hydro prop. They then did the test again at the confluence of the river.

After all the tests had been done the students returned to the field centre and compared their results with each other.
