A recent trip to Swaledale provided pupils from Cundall Manor School with the opportunity to conduct some valuable field work into the local river system.
GCSE pupils from the school benefited from some kind weather conditions as the investigated how a river changes as it moves downstream.
The youngsters performed an analysis on FIVE sites of Cogden Gill, a tributary of the River Swale, in an attempt to ascertain whether the Gill follows Bradshaw’s River Model which argues that rivers will get wider, deeper and faster as they make their way towards the sea.
Pupils will now use this data to complete their Geography GCSE controlled assessment worth 25% of their final grade.
Miss Stovin who led the excursion added: “Our pupils behaved themselves impeccably. We hope that everyone enjoyed the trip.”
