Coastal Curiosity

Our Year 12 Geographers visited Seaham recently to collect data for their independent investigations. They worked extremely hard and gathered lots of information, assessing the sea defences, completing questionnaires and field sketches, analysing flood risk as well as creating maps of the area. They also had lots of fun having a competition to see who could skim pebbles into the sea the furthest, bringing home some of the stones they had collected as a reminder of their day. Not missing their chance to practice their geography skills, our students even studied some of the pebbles to determine rates of coastal erosion.
