The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park was the destination for our GCSE students’ Geography field trip. Their primary focus was to collect data for their fieldwork skills exam. Working together in small groups they questioned members of the public and conducted people counts and land use surveys to ascertain whether the re-generation of Stratford had had a positive impact on that area of East London.
Students also experienced an integrated transport system at first hand as they travelled by train, tube, Docklands Light Railway (DLR), the Thames Clipper and the Emirates Air Line cable car. The students are now analysing all the data collected in preparation for their exams.
