A bright, sun drenched, Media City was the venue for our Year 11 Geography students as they conducted their field study. Looking at the key features of the location, they were able to clearly see the grandeur of the location and how employment opportunities had blossomed. The architecture and purpose of each of the buildings has transformed the area.
The apartments and commercial opportunities for retail and their impact on people’s lives were considered. The students covered a large are of the site, carefully reflecting on what they saw at specified locations.
All of their findings were logged on structured worksheets. Their findings will be analysed in lessons and this will be a vital component of their GCSE work.
