Year 12 Geography Field Studies
This term the Year 12 geography students have visited various areas surrounding regeneration, continuity and change.
Mr Evans took us to Battersea Power Station where we had the chance to do pilot studies for our NEA, for example, environmental quality surveys, questionnaires and shopping basket surveys. It was a good opportunity for us to understand the opportunities and challenges of regeneration on people, the economy and the environment in further detail.
Mr Holland then took us to Kingston where we saw features of continuity such as Kingston Market Hall built in 1840, which still remains. We also saw features of change such as the bridge which links Kingston high street and Canbury Gardens. This gave us a chance to do pilot studies such as land use surveys and questionnaires.
Lastly, Mr Holland then took us to Brick Lane to cement our knowledge in another case study of continuity and change. There are many buildings which remain the same, however, have different uses such as the Truman Brewery which is now used for events. Here we did crime surveys, estate agent surveys, environmental quality surveys and questionnaires in order to be fully prepared for our coursework data collection.
