Year 8 Investigate the School’s Microclimate

The Year 8 geographers have been studying weather and climate, specifically looking at factors that affect a microclimate.

Putting their skills to the test, they worked together as group to collect data in order to determine what local factors are affecting the school. For example, they examined surfaces for the impact of albedo, buildings and the impact they have on wind speed and temperature as well as aspect with regards to how buildings are situated (in the shade vs in the sun). The students gained important skills not only with respect to proper data collection technique but also in report writing, presentation of the information and analysis. However, the most important skill was to understand how to recognize different features in order to make informed decisions about our surroundings.

Some thoughts from the year 8 geography students about their experiences:

"I enjoyed investigating the impact of albedo on temperature. We found out that darker surfaces absorb more light / heat so were hotter than other surfaces." Lilia

"Going outside was fun. We learnt how to use weather instruments such as the anemometer." Ben 

"I really enjoyed collecting the data and investigating our school's microclimate." Sophie
