At the weekend our Year 12 geography pupils went on a geography field trip to study the Moscow River. Geography teacher Mr. Meadows told us about this trip:
“The Geography IB Diploma Programme is made up of a variety of components, and as part of the IB Course pupils must complete an Internal Assessment (IA). This is an essay style written task that pupils must produce and is a key component of the Diploma.
In order to write their IA, IB Geography pupils should collect primary data from the field based on a particular area of study, our area of study is Fresh Water. In our case, the students collected their own data from the study of a Freshwater source; the source of the Moscow River.
We began our study around the area of Zaprudnya, Smolensk Oblast, and worked our way downstream measuring different sites along the river profile. Measurements ranging from river depth, width, velocity and rock class, the pupils collected some successful data at eleven different sites along the river profile.
While on the trip, the group were able to witness the pure beauty of the Russian nature, enjoying the picturesque countryside, from endless fields and rolling hills to the dense summer coloured green forests. The trip took three days and many hours of field work, and besides the data collection, we were able to balance the weekend with study and leisure. Swimming and SUP boarding in the crystal clear Novye Sychiki Lake to cool down after the hot days of measurements followed by some relaxing Banya time. Volleyball and table tennis matches took place during the evenings.
Setting our pupils in good stead for further study beyond school, we have some young geographers in the making.”
