Year 10 and 11 geography students went to East London to see the effects of regeneration in Stratford, and to compare that with an area that has not been regenerated yet. We visited Canning Town and Stratford, including Stratford High Street, the Olympic park and Westfield.
We carried out surveys of the areas, looked at land use and found out local people’s opinions using a questionnaire.
This involved a lot of walking, travelling on the DLR and collecting data – our final stop was to have a well earned stop in Westfield for a drink of ‘bubbletea’ before catching the train home. A successful and fun day out!
