Recently, Year 8 travelled to the Yorkshire Dales National Park where they investigated the geography behind the Ingleton Water Falls Trail.
Pupils enjoyed the 7km walk around the trail visiting the Money Tree, Pecca Falls, Beezley Falls, Rival Falls, Snow Falls and the famous Thornton Force.
They investigated the processes behind the formation of the waterfalls, looking at the unique geology of Pecca Falls and making comparisons to the more traditional waterfall of Thornton Force.
Geographical investigations turned out to be extremely hard work, so when everyone stumbled across an ice cream van it soon became overrun with pupils and staff alike as they queued to get a much needed half way refreshment.
Ingleton Falls is a longstanding annual trip for QEGS, which was another huge success with an excellent time being had by all!
