Cranedale Update
February 01, 2017
By Mr P Hobbs, Teacher of Geography
Currently a group of 13 A level geographers have just completed the second full day out in the field collecting data to help with their A2 exams this summer.

Firstly, Monday was spent in the rather sleepy town of Malton (apparently the food capital of Yorkshire) collecting urban data allowing a better understanding of the methods used and possible criticisms. The weather was chilly, but kind, so all ended the day quite upbeat. Tuesday dawned with the promise of rain and a rather wetter day in the river. As it turned out, this failed to dampen any spirits, and a quality day collecting primary data in three locations in the North York Moors ensued. Chancellor's has welcomed another school for the river studies day, and we have seen some excellent cross school collaboration, not only with collecting data but also in negotiating some rather boggy ground, which threatened to consume more than one set of wellies. All at Cranedale are buoyant and getting some quality work done throughout.
