Geographers going underground

Yesterday, the Year 9 geographers were out learning about the landscape of Cheddar Gorge as part of their work in geography on carboniferous limestone. 

The subterranean features of Gough's Cave made an impression on many of the students, although perhaps not as much as the sweet shop near the cave entrance! It was good to see the viewing tower open again after renovation because they were afforded wonderful views along the Mendips towards Exmoor in the distance. As if by magic, the rain held off until the moment the coaches pulled away from the Cheddar car park to begin their return journey to Bristol.

QEH geographers are often out and about on field trips in the south west, exploring the world around them and gaining practical knowledge to support and develop their classroom learning. Team Geography also travel further afield, to Morocco, Iceland and New Zealand.
