Fieldwork in The Malvern Hills
24 June 2016
On the 8 and 9 June, Year 7 went to the Malvern Hills to investigate the impact of tourism and to put into practice their OS map skills. The girls began at Gardiner’s Quarry and made a short ascent to the top of Jubilee Hill, admiring the spectacular views of the Worcestershire countryside along the way. Once at the top, the girls used their knowledge of OS maps to answer questions about the landscape around them. The girls then made their descent towards British Camp where they enjoyed a spot of lunch and ice cream in the sunshine.
The girls will spend the rest of their Geography lessons this term completing a fieldwork study investigating the impacts of tourism on the area; this will develop their geographical skills in preparation for Year 8.
Thank you to the staff who accompanied the trips; an enjoyable time was had by all!
