Year 13 Geography Field Trip to Magilligan Field Centre

On Monday 28th November, the Year 13 Geography AS class travelled by train with Mrs Thompson and Mrs Major on an overnight fieldwork residential to Magilligan Field Centre, Limavady.

On arrival we carried out a study of the unique Umbra nature reserve and its spectacular sand dune ecosystem. That evening we worked on our soil samples in the lab and started to pull our data together. This data will form the basis of our fieldwork for our Unit 3 exam paper in May.

On Tuesday we carried out a river study of the Curly Burn river before our journey home. The group had a fantastic two days in the winter sunshine experiencing first hand many of the geographical features and processes they have been learning about in the classroom and developing fieldwork skills. Thank-you to Mrs Carlisle for joining us overnight and to Michael Cross at the centre for hosting us and a huge well done to the students who were fantastic ambassadors for the college.
