A Day at the Beach

We always enjoy the scenic photos of the annual Year 11 Geography trip to Hunstanton. During this year’s trip, the pupils conducted two studies. In the first, a range of equipment was used to investigate how the vegetation type, PH and infiltration rate of sand dunes changed with distance from the sea. The second looked at the beach profile, from the sea to cliff. The pupils worked in groups, measuring beach sediment and assessing to what extent their profile and field sketches corresponded with theory. At the end of the day their hard work was well rewarded with a delicious meal of fish and chips (complete with visits from local seagulls).
