Lulworth Cove - Year 10 Field Trip
On Friday 30th September 2011, all of the Year 10 Geography students went to Lulworth Cove in Dorset to investigate coastal landforms, for our first coursework assessment piece which is worth 15% of our final GCSE. We were all told to be at school, in the car park at 6:30 am for the coach to leave at 6:45 am. After a long journey on a hot double-decker coach, everyone was pleased to arrive at the sunny and beautiful destination.
We started the trip by looking at the different types of rocks. These were chalk, clay and limestone. After this, we all went off into our own classes and groups where we were then told our daytime plan and what was going to happen throughout the day. During our trip we had to do field sketches at Stair Hole, and Lulworth Cove which we then had to annotate by doing a beach profile. We also had to find the angle of the beach, the wave count, the height of the cliff and what rocks actually make up Lulworth Cove.
Many students took cameras with them where they were allowed to take pictures of Lulworth Cove and gather primary data which would help them write up a 1200 word essay to our hypothesis: The area around Lulworth Cove has features and evidence of erosion and deposition.
Overall the trip was very enjoyable, and an interesting experience. We would like to thank Miss Robertson, Miss Hewson, Miss Gardener and Miss Faherty for taking the time to help us gather information which will help us in our coursework.
