10-06 Geography students visit Hunstanton
Our students are taking part in an exciting Geography project in Hunstanton this week.
Year 7 students visited the area on Monday and our Year 8 students are visiting the Norfolk seaside town today to study coastal erosion in the area.
On Monday, Year 7 students used their art skills to take photographs and make drawings of Hunstanton and its coastal defences and then surveyed members of the public to help them answer the question: Does Hunstanton Deserve Saving?
Teacher Rob Cooper said: “Our students were posed the question does Hunstanton deserve saving because the area is one of the places in the UK where the most coastal erosion is happening.
“On Monday, our Year 7 students looked at the different ways coastal erosion is being tackled in Hunstanton and the composition of its rocks.
“They also surveyed the public to find out if they thought it was an important UK holiday destination and an important part of Norfolk.
“The Year 7 students were brilliant on their trip and I think the Year 8 students will get a lot of out of their trip today.”
