Rivers, Rivers, Rivers

4 successful geography trips done and dusted this term . . . rivers, rivers and more rivers . . .

Year 10 visited Coleshill near Highworth on 3 abnormally sunny days at the beginning of October to investigate the hypothesis “Coleshill is typical of the middle section of a river”.   Once again lots of opportunity to get their feet wet and embrace the great outdoors.

Year 12 also visited a river – this time the River Churn in Gloucestershire measuring infiltration rates at different points along the river valley.  The greatest risk was surprisingly not drowning but killer crayfish loitering under the rocks and nipping at fingers.  Fabulous weather of 25 degrees, however cannot be complained about.
