Year 10 field trip

Year 10 had a field trip to investigate the how the river Chelmer changes along its course. We visited 4 places along the river starting near it’s source and ending with the mouth of the river where we saw the estuary. The pupils took measurements of the depth, width, sediment, valley gradient and the speed of water flow and saw how all the theory from their lessons looks in real life. We had fun paddling in the river at Dunmow, and eating ice creams at Maldon.
