Sorry can't think of anywhere better or easier to get to or that won't generate similar costs.

We do Walton with Y7, looking at the Managed and Unmanaged sections and spending half an hour fossil hunting - magic !

General Discussion / Coastal Erosion fieldwork ideas

Hi All

I am based in SE London. I currently take Year 8 to Walton on the Naze for fieldwork, however I need to cut transport costs. 

Can anyone suggest other good examples of coastal locations I can take them that might be easier to get too? 

I like WOTN because it has great examples of erosion and sea defences etc so it really brings the topic to life - any ideas most welcome!

Thanks very much
Mark

Indeed a visit  to Tenterden would be great. Have been saying it for five years and never done it.
Would really like to see how things work in your Sixth Form Centre too.

Put on a timeline with building of the pyramids etc and they'll realise just how recently this country was glaciated!

Hi All

I can't decide between them at present, Although I do like the look of what OCR are offering.  Waiting for the final details until I decide.  Does anyone know of any conferences / meetings coming up next term that will be attended by the main boards?

Thanks
