Carding Mill Valley and Birmingham

On Monday 23rd September, the first class of Year 10 GCSE geography students set off on their fieldwork trip to conduct a river study at Carding mill valley, Church Stretton, Shropshire. The students enjoyed the short walk to their upper most site, located at the base of a waterfall and then continued to carry out a series of measurements on the characteristics of the river. The students measured and experienced a number of changes to the river down the 2 sites they visited on their journey down the valley, ultimately ending with an ice cream overlooking the Shropshire countryside.

On Tuesday 24th September, the same group of students went on their second day of fieldwork to investigate how housing quality varies with distance from Birmingham’s city centre. The students started at the northern most point of Birmingham in the wealthy area of Little Aston, before making their way south towards Kingstanding and passing through Lozells, eventually stopping at Millennium Point in Birmingham city centre. From here the students visited a number of key attractions including Birmingham museum and the library, culminating in a walk through Gas Street Basin canals to see what city centre urban living is like. The students were mixed in their views of where they liked best and why. 

Other groups of students did the same trips over the next 9 days. A lot of rain fell.

The pictures show the difference in water levels at Light Spout Waterfall, one picture was taken on the 23rd September and the other was taken on 2nd October.
