Junior School Geography Fieldtrips

Year 4 Geography Trip to Macclesfield Forest

On 25th September, Year 4 pupils set off together on a Geography fieldtrip to Macclesfield Forest. They really enjoyed getting out and about to explore the importance of water in the landscape. The girls became research scientists trying to discover the best water filtering system. They found sand and stones could clean some very muddy water! They also investigated the permeability of the different rock types found in the forest and found out what sort of landscape is required to create a reservoir. The sun shone and they all had a wonderful and very interesting day, which equipped them well for their future Geography and Science work.

Year 5 Geography Trip to Macclesfield Forest

On Friday 28th September, Year 5 girls visited Macclesfield Forest in glorious weather. They followed part of the River Bollin and created and measured their own investigations, such as, how fast part of the river flows and where the widest part of the river was. They had a lovely picnic lunch in the sunshine with just the sound of nature surrounding them. A perfect way to end the week.

Year 6 Geography Trip to Edale

Year 6 pupils could not have asked for a more perfect day for their Geography fieldtrip to Edale; the sun was shining and there was hardly a cloud in the sky. The girls began by discussing what were the best items to pack and prepare for a mountain environment. They also thought about the differences between Edale and Manchester and what people did for jobs in Edale. Each group timed themselves walking up The Nab, a very steep hill. The girls were all very keen to get to the top as that was where they were going to stop to have lunch! They learnt about the physical features of mountains, different wildlife and also how our trip might have been different in the rain. Overall, we had a fantastic day out and felt so fortunate to have such glorious weather. Lots of learning and fun was had by all.
