Year 10 Geographers go downstream!

17 June 2019  |  Jill Lundberg  |  Posted in:

Year 10 Geographers recently investigated changing downstream characteristics of the Arkle Beck in Arkengarthdale. With the investigation designed and developed in lessons beforehand, the trip allowed students to collect primary data and to examine whether the Bradshaw model was relevant to this location. Year 10 Geographers recently investigated changing downstream characteristics of the Arkle Beck in Arkengarthdale. With the investigation designed and developed in lessons beforehand, the trip allowed students to collect primary data and to examine whether the Bradshaw model was relevant to this location. Following Mrs House and Mr Hedley’s demonstration of data collection techniques at the first site, students then worked in groups of 12 to collect their own data at four following sites. They measured key aspects such as the wetted perimeter of the channel, average depth and average velocity of the water. On returning to school, the students presented, analysed and evaluated their data in preparation for their unit 3 exam in Year 11. All the students were an absolute credit to both the Geography department & Richmond School.
