Geography Students Head to the Beach

Notre Dame’s A-level Geographers were happy to get back to fieldwork on September 27 and 28. After a long hiatus due to Covid-19 restrictions, 95 of our students visited the East Yorkshire coast to learn skills they could utilise in their independent investigations later in the course.

Stopping off in Hornsea and Mappleton to study coastal erosion and management, our students developed their ability to create a hypothesis, assess risk, and carry out beach profiling and sediment analysis.

As you can see from the photo above, which shows teacher Richard Hurrell pointing out a geographical feature, both trips were blessed with dry weather, and our students left the east coast feeling well prepared for their independent project work.
