Geography Field Trip :: Juniper Hall
On Friday 7th October 2011 the A2 Geography students visited Juniper Hall Field Centre in Dorking to conduct a geographical investigation. After an early train ride and trek up Box Hill, we arrived at Juniper Hall, ready to start the day ahead. Our first task was difficult as we had not studied the topic of succession yet, but we rose to the challenge and succeeded with Miss Hewson’s help.
We were given equipment we had never used before and then set off to gather our data on the hypothesis we had created that morning. When collecting the data we used a number of geographical methods to see how, over a distance, plant species changed. This was encouraging as it matched the theory we had been taught.
Following the data collection, we got the opportunity to test some of the data we collected such as the pH of soil. We then had to write up our data and present it to students of the other school. Although we were nervous we managed to give an excellent presentation and explained our hypothesis and data collection well.
This trip was beneficial to us for our exam in January on Geographical skills and was also a very fun day. We would like to thank the Geography teachers, Miss Robertson and Miss Hewson for organising this trip and accompanying us.
