Year 12 embrace local geography for fieldwork assignments
Due to Covid restrictions, the Year 12 Geographers were unable to undertake their residential fieldwork to Swanage, Dorset. However, following fieldwork in the school grounds and research into local geographical issues, the Year 12’s have embraced their local Geography and embarked on their Independent Investigations over the Easter holidays.
Josie visited the Kidbrooke Village development. She is investigating to what extent it has been a success following the demolition of the Ferrier estate.
Ella’s passion for physical Geography took her to the Kent coastlines of Deal and Hythe where she is investigating whether the orientation of the beach impacts coastal processes. Kat was intrigued by the information boards that had been recently erected in Greenwich Park which summarised the multi-million pound Royal Parks ‘Greenwich Revealed’ project. She is investigating the potential social and environmental successes of the project. She will be sending a questionnaire to parents as part of her project and I ask for your support by completing this. Also, as part of her project, she conducted an in-depth interview with the Partnerships & Community Engagement Officer, with fascinating results. Tabitha spent time on Greenwich Peninsula to compare it's economy, environment and culture to Greenwich town centre.
I wish the girls the best of luck in the completion of their NEA’s.
