A ‘Sense Of Place’ For Lower Sixth Geographers

LOWER SIXTH GEOGRAPHY STUDENTS SPENT TIME OUT IN BRECON AND THE SURROUND AREAS YESTERDAY COLLECTING DATA IN THEIR LOCAL STUDY AREA

Lower Sixth Geographers studying the new specification collected data in their local study area yesterday, developing their ‘sense of place’ in line with the new guidance for A Level Geography across the country.

They started off with a walk through the fringes of the town and up to the Slwch, an accessible peak and ancient fort which gives one of the most impressive views of the whole town. After considering the endogenous and exogenous factors for the development of Brecon through time, pupils undertook a carefully designed information gathering exercise in the guise of a treasure hunt which took them to all nooks and crannies of Brecon, developing their knowledge of its past, present and its future with sustainability in mind.

Back in the classroom, the department’s skills in cutting edge digital mapping and data logging were employed to great effect in the collation, manipulation and presentation of data.
Despite the persistent rain from 11 o’clock onwards, the group remained cheerful and spirited all day and were a credit to themselves being so organised in going about conducting thorough fieldwork.
