Year 7 experienced a brand new investigation with the Geography Department, on their first field trip to Morecambe.

Pupils investigated sea defences and the facilities for tourists in the seaside town, as they walked three miles along the promenade from the ‘Venus and Cupid’ statue, passing the ‘Eric Morecambe’ statue and the famous art deco Midland Hotel.

They conducted environmental quality surveys, asked members of the public a few questions about Morecambe and sketched new and old sea defences of the town.

The pupils were given the opportunity to explore Morecambe’s Happy Mount Park and of course had an essential photo with the Eric Morecambe statue.  Obviously, no Geography field trip to the seaside is complete without sampling a tasty ice cream!

A wonderful time was had by all.
