Year 8 students enjoyed good weather for their Geography trip to Priory Gardens, Orpington, to study microclimates. The trip, spread over two days, saw groups of students investigating climatic differences on a micro-scale in the Gardens. Students examined the difference in temperature surrounding buildings, water and on different surfaces. Students had an interesting day, also working hard on their own additional hypotheses with some students investigating differences in wind speed and direction, others choosing to examine the influence of vegetation on microclimates. An enjoyable day was had by all, staff were impressed by the students enthusiasm and hard-work, and excellent data was collected, meaning students had thought-provoking results to analyse and draw conclusions from in their final write up.
