On Thursday 20th September, year 11 GCSE Geography students made their way to Magilligan Field Centre to investigate the changes in the Curly Burn River from the source to the mouth. Thankfully storm Helena had passed by the previous day to give us a warm and dry day for our study. Natalie our supervisor at the field centre met us and provided the pupils with an overview of the day’s activities and demonstrated how the various equipment should be used. After some lunch the pupils were kitted out with wellies, hard hats and wet gear and we made our way by bus to our first site. The pupils had to measure the depth, width, gradient, velocity, load size and shape over the course of various locations. They recorded this information and will use it to prepare for their CCEA GCSE exam. A great day was had by all and thankfully most of us returned to Parkhall Integrated College without soggy socks.
