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 they carried out a study of the unique Umbra nature reserve and its spectacular sand dune ecosystem. That evening they worked on soil samples in the lab and started to pull data together. This data formed the basis of our fieldwork for theur Unit 3 exam paper in May.
On Tuesday they carried out a river study of the Curly Burn river before returning 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.
