Geography A level students enjoy first fieldwork training days since lockdown

For part of their Geography A level, our students have been  out and about on local fieldwork training days. 

The Geography Department organized for them to spend the first day investigating air pollution in Hammersmith followed by a second day investigating water and carbon cycles in Bushy Park this week.

Following the fieldwork training, students will now be collecting data specific to their own investigations for the Non Examined Assessment aspect of their course which counts towards 20% of their A Level. 

 

Mike Ashby, Head of Geography said: “After this long period of lockdown, it’s been great to be able to take the students out on these training days again. They are an invaluable way for our students to pick up the key skills they will need to undertake their own investigations. Their projects are a great opportunity for them to show independence, to put into practice what they have learnt in the course and demonstrate their geographical approach to real-world problems.”
