Geography Department Update

An update from the Geography department- on behalf of Humanities!

The Geography department has organised a range of field trips to support the learning of Year 12 Geography students. On all of these trips, students have worked incredibly well as a team, built some strong friendships and shown some extremely high levels of resilience. These field trips have been organised to support student learning and preparation for the Year 12s Geography coursework that they will be working on from now until Year 13.

These trips started in January when fifteen Year 12 students went to Dorset for 3 days with Miss Chalkley and Mr Bale. We collected a range of data on place representation in Boscombe and a range of physical fieldwork including measuring beach profiles along Chesil Beach- students really did experience fieldwork in extreme settings with it being the first storm of the year, 50mph winds on the coast was very interesting! The students really were an asset to Chobham Academy and completed some excellent work coping extremely well in often difficult conditions- Miss Chalkley's waterproof trousers did provide some hilarity for the group!

We then went on our next field trip in February, this time to Bradwell on Sea to allow us to have real world experience of our Changing Places case study with Mr Eyre and Miss Chalkley. This involved a presentation by the village vicar explaining the history of the village and answering any questions that we had. Next, the students worked in groups to complete a range of human fieldwork activities to support their understanding of fieldwork methods. This was finished off with a village tour in the minibus by Mr Eyre! Again, the weather wasn't on our side and students showed great resilience to complete the range of fieldwork activities planned to support their learning. 

Finally, Mr Bale and Mr Khan took Y12 students on a walking field trip around Hackney Wick- it was nice and sunny this time! This trip was designed to support student understanding of their local area and give a real world experience of their other case study for the Changing Places topic that students are currently working on. The field trip also allowed students to develop their fieldwork techniques to support their NEA preparation over the coming weeks and months
