Year 10 Geography pupils travelled to the Lake District National Park to investigate the management of tourism in a glaciated area. The trip was organised in preparation for their forthcoming GCSE exam in summer 2019, where pupils will be asked questions about how they investigated physical geography.
Pupils observed and collected evidence about the management of tourism in Grasmere by taking photos, conducting environmental quality surveys and some questionnaires. During the walk up to the beautiful Easedale Tarn, pupils measured footpath erosion to see if tourism was being successfully managed on this popular walk.
The sunshine, and the long walk ensured that all pupils had a fantastic day, with most of them managing to enjoy a well deserved ice cream in the village!
