GCSE Geography Fieldwork

Students in Year 9 and Year 10, who have chosen GCSE Geography as their common mission choice, will be going on fieldwork on 23rd June to Sheffield city centre.

As part of the exam specification requirements for their Paper 3 exam, students will be collecting primary data during the fieldwork (we will be observing Covid guidelines and maintaining the school bubbles where possible). During their lessons in school, they will be analysing, presenting, evaluating and drawing conclusions from the fieldwork to prepare them for this section of the exam.

The fieldwork is based on the theory learnt in the Urban Issues and Challenges section of the course and will be focusing on the level of success and impact of regeneration (or lack of it!) in different area’s of Sheffield’s CBD.

Students will need to arrive to school at the normal time and we will be back to school by 3:15. Students will need :

  • a packed lunch and a drink.
  • appropriate clothing for the weather that day as we will be outside all day. We will be walking roughly 5 miles around the centre so comfortable shoes are a must!
  • Any inhalers/epipens etc if needed – staff will have a first aid kit/spares just in case
  • a couple of pens Sheffield Travel Guide | Sheffield Tourism - KAYAK
