Year 8 Coast Trip 2018

Year 8s enjoy a day by the sea

Two hundred of our year 8 students had a true outdoor learning experience on Tuesday October 2nd, when they visited the coast between Seaford and Hastings for their geography fieldwork day.

A primary focus was coastal defence, which is hardly ever out of the news along this stretch of coastline. 

Students also looked at the different shapes of pebbles and stones on different beaches, and filled in fieldwork booklets explaining the processes that had created them.

One highlight of the day was the walk down to the estuary of the Cuckmere River, allowing a comparison of the now-abandoned meanders with the canalized route to the sea.

Overall a very successful day; well done to all of the students involved. And of course another sighting of Mr Latus’ yellow geography jacket.
