Geography in Iceland

‘TCS Geography in Iceland!’

Just before the October half-term a group of GCSE Geography students from Years 10 and 11 embarked on a once in a lifetime trip to Iceland.  Despite not having the best weather the students had a fantastic time and the amount of experiential learning that took place was absolutely priceless.  During the trip the students were able to see breath-taking waterfalls, receding glaciers and recent lava fields.

They also learnt about how the use of geothermal energy has led to a surplus of hot water (they even have under-street heating and a heated beach!) and saw Eyjafjallajokull up close and found out that a much bigger volcano is due to erupt soon (keep your eyes on the news for Katla!).  Mr Johns and Mrs Pedder would like to say thank you to those students that came as they were an absolute credit to the school.  Make sure you keep your eyes open in the new year for the 2020 trip!’
