Located in an area of outstanding natural beauty on the Yorkshire coast, Flamborough Head was the perfect 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 on the Holderness Coast.
Pupils had the opportunity to practice their field sketching skills of the High Stack. The weather was perfect for viewing the spectacular cliffs! Pupils also measured the length of the beach and discussed sediment size along the beach to identify the direction of longshore drift.
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 for some!
The pupils were exceptional ambassadors for the school, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all pupils and staff for a fantastic trip!
