A-level geographers looking across the Blencathra mountain

Last month nine geography students from Year 12 hiked across the Northern Fells mountain range in the Lake District in order to put the theory they had learnt in the classroom into action.

The group spent four days in Cumbria. While there they studied the impact of glacial formations on the hills and considered how much erosive force they have as well as drawing and annotating field sketches.

On other days the group collected data at various sites along the river channels in the valleys. In the evenings they used their collected data in presentations and analysed the statistics.

They discussed how they could describe and explain features in their exams. Students again developed an understanding of the scale of the features and the forces needed to create them by glaciers.
