Geographers are in a spin with their new weather gadgets!

There were some strange sights this week in front of the school on the pitch, as students held up paper windows and gadgets to the sky.

What were they doing? Looking for planes? Bird-spotting?? No, our Year 8 Geographers have been practising out their learning this week in their new Weather and Climate unit!

This week they explored the fieldwork side of the subject with a lesson outside on the astroturf using the department's brand new anemometers, a hand-held gadget designed to measure wind speed and direction - and our new toys also measure temperature! These mini-machines measure wind speed via a delicately housed propeller that digitally measures the wind strength and proposes the direction. 

In addition, our very own Miss Buckley utilised her artistic skills to show us a design of an Okta template that students used itodeterme cloud cover by assessing the degree of coverage through 8 windows in a paper frame. 

Students were clearly beside themselves to get away from the classroom for a lesson, and practice some learning in the outdoors! 

Using this kind of equipment is a fundamental component of learning Geography, as it marries the classroom theory with practice - and therefore seals the understanding for learners. Students can practise first hand what they learn in their textbooks and class lessons, and enjoy some fresh air into  the bargain  (average relative humidity, 24 degrees and 6 mph from the west to be exact!) and some early autumn sunshine. They also learn to think about project-based research thinking, a higher order skill that enables deeper analysis of concepts within Geography. 

Here are our Year 8 learners in action - bringing you the weather straight to our newsletter! 

See you next week!
