Located in an area of outstanding natural beauty on the Yorkshire coast Flamborough Head was an exciting environment for our Year 7 pupils to explore the stretch of rugged chalk cliffs for their coastal landforms geography topic.
It was a busy day as the pupils explored the effects of coastal erosion, longshore drift and coastal management along the Holderness Coast. Pupils had the opportunity to practice their field sketching skills at High Stack. The weather was perfect for viewing the spectacular cliffs Pupils also enquired on the Selwicks Bay beach, discussed sediment size and worked out longshore drift direction.
We had time to enjoy the scenery and a traditional seaside lunch of fish and chips was perfect after a hard working morning. Everyone enjoyed the day and there was even time for an ice-cream before departure to Ulrome where we looked at part of the fastest eroding coastline in Europe.
As always our pupils were good ambassadors and I would like to thank all pupils and staff for a fantastic trip!
