The year eight group went out today to complete the first section of their fieldwork investigation, for their common entrance project. The students went to Oldbrook, in Milton Keynes. They are also going to complete a self-led investigation in their own street with their parents, over half term to give them an opportunity to compare areas. This fieldwork links to their current unit of work, that looks at: House design; environmental quality; crime statistics and perception of place. The students carried out a range of surveys in the area and were also fortunate to meet a local councillor who told them about transport around the borough. The students had the opportunity to visit a range of different areas and enjoyed looking at the difference between them. They are now going to be writing up their first of many projects to help them as they progress into secondary school next year.
