Year 8 River Studies

Year 8 Geographers study the River Brock

The Year 8 Geographers had a wonderful day at Waddecar investigating the River Brock. They worked in teams to measure the river’s cross section and velocity using a variety of equipment. Sketching the river encouraged the students to observe the landscape and apply their classroom knowledge to the real world. Whilst catching freshwater invertebrates gave the Geographers an insight into pollution monitoring.     A superb day was had by all.
