Geography field trip reveals human impact

A Geography field trip saw students travel to a near-by town to discover the impact of humans on river waters.


Pool Academy Year 11s spent a day gathering data to help them with their up-coming GCSE work.

They travelled on two mini buses to Helston to carry out their field work. They first looked at housing in the town. Then they journeyed to the nearby river, Cober, to see how humans have changed the depth and width of the waters.

Kirsty Conway Baker, Geography teacher at Pool Academy, said: “Students must do this as part of their course and will have to answer questions about it in their paper three exam. 
“It was lovely weather during the day and as always we had well behaved students.”

There were three groups of students who went on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. They were out all day collecting information.
