Coasteering along on the crest of a wave
Year 8 had barely started term before they boarded the minibuses bound for the south coast.
En route, a day was spent at Cheddar Gorge as the living Geography lesson began. Arriving in Swanage in the late evening, a hasty dinner was consumed ravenously before tired heads hit the pillow.
After a day of taking pictures, collecting samples, undertaking surveys and generally Geographying, coasteering beckoned in order to witness coastal erosion first hand. This may have seemed a somewhat chilly method of observing landforms, but good fun nonetheless.
A trip around the bay on a boat allowed the boys to gain perspective on the coastline before heading back to school to further their land-based, classroom-bound education.
