Year 3 and 4 Geography trip to Meeth Quarry

Shebbear CollegeCoCurricular, Prep School

Our pupils set out to see how the landscape had been affected by clay quarrying in the past and what had happened since the quarry had stopped being used.

They enjoyed a long walk through woods and over tracks and made the most of every opportunity to test out the waterproof capabilities of their wellies by making sure they walked through every puddle available.

They were lucky enough to see two slow worms, a frog, butterflies and dragonflies. The weather was wonderful and the views over the disused quarries were spectacular. They will now use all the information gathered to inform their Geography lessons and make the links to local industry, both historical and current.
