Year 9 Geography Trip to the River Tillingbourne

Thursday, 29 September 2016

Wellies, Warm Weather and Wading!

On Monday 26th and Thursday 29th September 2016 Year 9 went on a Geography trip to the River Tillingbourne, with half of the year group going on each day. The students were working in groups to collect data for an investigation about how a river changes from its source to its mouth. After a ‘scenic’ journey (especially on the Thursday) we arrived at Crossways Farm and met staff from Sayers Croft who were on hand to help the students measure the width, depth, speed and sediment size at three points along the river. When the excitement of collecting data wore off, the students devised a new investigation into who could get the furthest into the river without filling their wellies with water. Thanks to the good weather and the students’ high spirits an enjoyable day was had by all!
