Our Year 10 Geography pupils spent the day studying the River Clwyd as part of their GCSE Geography course recently.
The aim of the field trip was to investigate how the characteristics of the river change downstream. The girls measured the width, depth, velocity and sediment size at different points along the river. They gathered a lot of data to analyse to work out the average conditions and identify any anomalies and developed their skills in collecting data accurately which they can discuss on paper 3 of the geography exam.
Time was also spent investigating Clocaenog Forest to see the different components of the ecosystem and the water and nutrient cycles in action.
