By 14 June 2024June 18th, 2024No Comments

On June 13 and 14, Year 11 GCSE Geography students embarked on an educational trip to Walton-on-the-Naze to investigate the coastal management strategies implemented in the area. This excursion was a crucial component of their GCSE studies, providing a hands-on experience with data collection techniques essential for their coursework.

During the visit, students had the opportunity to compare two distinct sites: one with coastal defences and another without. This comparison enabled them to observe and analyse the effectiveness and impact of different coastal management strategies in real-world settings.

The students meticulously gathered data at each site, which will be used to evaluate both the location of Walton-on-the-Naze for conducting such investigations and the various methods of data collection employed. Their findings will contribute significantly to their understanding of coastal geography and management practices.

Despite the windy conditions, the weather cooperated, allowing the students to enjoy some sunshine during their fieldwork. This practical experience not only enriched their academic knowledge but also provided an enjoyable and memorable learning opportunity.

The Lammas School is proud of the diligence and enthusiasm demonstrated by the Year 11 students and looks forward to seeing the insights and evaluations they will produce from this valuable field trip.
