Year 11 Geography Expedition
Iceland proved to be an exciting new destination for the Class 11 geography expedition and what a trip it turned out to be!
The students explored a glacier scattered with volcanic ash and crystal blue ice, majestic waterfalls, a black beach with tall basalt columns and a glacial lagoon filled with large icebergs. The exploration continued in an area which displayed two tectonic plates which has moved apart over thousands of years since Iceland emerged from the Atlantic ocean. Field experiments were conducted for the IGCSE Geography course, and the final days consisted of observing exploding geysers, stroking ponies, eating freshly made dairy ice cream and visiting the hot crystal Blue Lagoon that has a layer of white minerals that you can bathe in for hours.
The whole trip was an incredible adventure as well as contributing to the enjoyment of the IGCSE Geography course.
