The Year 10 Geographers have just returned from the field studies centre at Nettlecombe Court where they completed their field study at Porlock Bay.
Students collected data to investigate coastal processes such as longshore drift and erosion. They will be using this data to complete their coursework over the next two weeks.
The students worked hard and have already completed most of their coursework. They have presented their data using a range of graphs, compass roses, pie charts and located proportional symbols. On the final day they completed a Mann Whitney U Test, which is an advanced statistical technique normally taught in Year 13.
Fieldwork has not only enabled the students to see geographical processes in action, but also work as a team, persevere through challenging tasks, work out of their comfort zone and complete their work to tight deadlines.
They all worked well and were a pleasure to teach; a real asset to Sidcot School. Well done Year 10 Geographers!
