Geography Rivers Field Trip

7th March 2019

Dear Parents

As part of the GCSE Geography course, the girls need to undertake some Physical Geography fieldwork and this is best done close to the examination itself.

To that end, I would like to take them to study the River Windrush in Witney, during the afternoon of Friday 22nd March. We will leave school at 12.50 pm with a packed lunch and return in time for the end of school.

We will be looking and measuring the characteristics of the river, including width, depth, pebble roundness, and velocity. To that end could I ask that clothing that can get wet and muddy without damage is worn (PE kit and waterproofs would be perfect), and if you have wellington boots at home that these are also brought.

Please be assured, that the bit of the river that we are looking at is far from a raging torrent and will not go above boot height!

A risk assessment has been carried out and is available for parents to see should they wish to do so.

With kind regards

Mr Humphreys
