First Fieldtrip for Lower Sixth Geologists

Just three weeks into their A-Level Geology course, our twenty-one Lower Sixth pupils were out in the field for the first time this week.

Exploring the geology of Pendower Beach on the Roseland gave them the perfect opportunity to examine evidence of sedimentary and tectonic processes that occurred over 300 million years ago.

The groups also carried out several specified practical endorsement activities, including locating features in the field on to base maps, measuring the orientation of structures and recording their observations on field sketches.

A huge thank you to Mr Blackie and Miss Hope for the fantastic photos and for making these valuable practical learning experiences possible.
