At the end of September, Year 11 students visited Botany Bay to carry out a fieldwork study as part of their geography course. They studied rocky shore diversity and zonation, where they identified a range of sea-life and recorded their findings on the rock pools. Students also looked at sand dune succession and found out why the sand dunes change as they regress. They explored the examples of coastal erosion at the cliffs, and their discussion and findings will form a part of their 'Changing landscapes of the UK' unit. The methods of collecting data are part of their fieldwork skills and the data will be used in class to complete a variety of numeracy based activities, which students will also be expected to use in their exams.
