Slapton Ley Field Centre


Last Friday Lower Sixth Geography students went to Slapton Ley Field Centre, Devon for the weekend. On arrival we visited the tiny village of Slapton and created our own investigation using some of the new research methods we had just been taught. On Saturday we spent the morning collecting beach data on Slapton Sands to find out what processes were responsible for its formation. In the afternoon we visited different locations along this stunning coastline to analyse the success of the different methods of sea defence. During our visit we even found time to buy an ice cream and watch a seal playing in the waves! In the evening we analysed the pebbles we had collected by sieving them to discover their phi size as well as assessing their geological composition. On our way home on Sunday, we stopped at Totnes to complete a range of data techniques that will be helpful when we begin our NEA later in the year. We also visited some of the very eccentric shops there. We really enjoyed the trip and were so lucky with the amazing weather; the sun was shining the whole time.
