Flatford Mill Geography Trip

On Monday 16th May, the Year 10 geography pupils set off for their field trip to Flatford Mill Field Study Centre. They had a busy few days, including field study sketching, conducting a ‘Bucket Challenge’, which incorporated measuring the amount of invertebrates in two different ponds, carrying out a bipolar analysis of tourism, and measuring the infiltration on different parts of the hill.

During the week, they also visited four sites along the River Brett to measure the depth, width and velocity of four different parts of the river and went to Ipswich to investigate Urban Regeneration.

After a very competitive geography-themed quiz night on the last night, pupils enjoyed constructing shelters on the final day, and in spite of the rainy weather, they all appeared to have a great time!
