The Year 10s collecting field data the Southend coast line

As part of their GCSE coursework, the Year 10 Geography class visited Southend last week.

During their two day trip, they undertook fieldwork to collect primary data with an aim to answer two questions: Whether tourism has both positive and negative environmental impacts on Southend? and why has the coast been defended at Southend?

The boys collected the following primary data to help answer these geographical questions:
• Wave orientation
• Sediment measurements
• Questionnaires
• Bi polar survey
• Business survey
• Field Sketch and/or photographs

Having collected their data they used their free time to visit Adventure Island as a reward for their thorough work. They are now presenting, analysing and drawing conclusions from the data back at school.
