On Thursday 16th and Friday 17th November the Year 12 Geography and Year 13 Geology groups travelled from Barry Comprehensive School to the Gower in order to collect data for their coursework investigations.
The Year 12 (AS) Geography students spent the first day collecting data about the glacial sediments (deposited during the last ice age) at Rhossili and Three Cliffs Bay.
On the second day the group investigated rural-urban change in the north of the Gower.The Year 13 (A2) Geology students travelled to a variety of locations in the south of the Gower. This allowed them to investigate how the rocks and structures found there have been affected by major tectonic events in the past.
Both visits were very successful as the students were able to collect a range of observations and data which will allow them to complete their coursework investigations. The weather was variable, but at no time did it prevent the students from demonstrating their fieldwork skills.
