Key Stage 3
During the summer term of Year 9 learners carry out fieldwork in north Ceredigion on the River Wyre. Working in groups they use a range of equipment to measure a number of river features and compare two different sites on the river. They measure and record some basic data such as river width, load size and load shape as well as more complex data including river depth intervals, flow rates/velocity and gradient. The added benefit of this fieldwork is that
they also meet a number of numeracy elements from the Literacy and Numeracy Framework (LNF).
