Dallowgill – Revision and River Studies

Year 11 Geographers

Thirty of our Y11 Geographers recently embarked upon a revision weekend to Dallowgill. The aim of the trip was to create some memorable experiences, allow students to rehearse some different revision strategies and to discover the Nidderdale countryside. This trip was the first of its kind and staff were blown away by the students’ levels of maturity and teamwork skills shown.

Once unpacked, students took part in a range of revision activities, before cooking their own pizzas and stargazing under the dark skies, toasting marshmallows and drinking hot chocolate around the fire pit.

The Saturday morning provided opportunity for students to explore the rolling countryside and incredible scenery. Taking part in a short orienteering task and river study, students were able to practise their fieldwork skills and work together as a team to navigate some tricky conditions along the River Laver, following the recent Storm Eunice.

A huge thank you to all staff, students and parents/carers who enabled this trip to successfully run.
