GCSE Geography Field Trip
Year 11 geography GCSE pupils visited Bristol to complete their second fieldwork visit. They spent the morning in and around Cabot Circus investigating whether or not the regeneration of Broadmead has a positive impact on the locality. A number of primary methods were carried out to collect their data including environmental quality surveys, pedestrian counts, sustainability indexes and taking photographs. In the afternoon they visited Bristol Zoo, which caused much excitement among the girls and staff! This included a rainforest workshop where the pupils found out about the characteristics of the rainforest biome, animal and plant adaptations, uses of the rainforest and ways to protect them. The girls also got to see some real rainforest animals and those brave enough could hold a hissing cockroach, stroke a snake and touch the slightly prickly tenrec. A great day was had by all.
