Wednesday 4th December 2019 (Mr Driscoll’s classes)
Wednesday 11th December 2019 (Ms Patel & Dr Smith’s classes)
The pupils participated in various outdoor data collection activities, related to Urban Regeneration. The content is relevant to 2 of next summer’s 3 geography exams. All students have been shown how to download the free latitude/longitude app https:// play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mylocation.latitudelongitude&gl=GB to enable them to display findings on an ArcGIS map upon return to school. Extension tasks provided in the pupil booklet will allow some an insight into data collection at A Level standard.
After lunch pupils partook in a Unit 3 masterclass to help relate their findings to Unit 2 & Unit 3 examination questions. Here is a pupil account of the 1st visit;
“… We went to Wembley Park by tube. We visited the London Designer Outlet and spoke to people living in the area, asking them questions about their views on the regeneration of the Wembley area. We received mixed feedback, although most people seemed happy with the changes, saying it was a wonderful place…”. “…We found out what has changed since the regeneration had started. We witnessed lots of current ongoing construction as part of the regeneration…”.
