Geography Fieldwork Year 6
In the classroom we made hypotheses (predictions) about what we would find on our fieldwork trip
What condition would the play area be in terms of litter, graffiti, vandalism and neglect?
Most of us hypothesised that the play area would be in good condition
What would the facilities be like in the park area in general?
Most of us hypothesised that the facilities would be good too
Would tourists have different views from residents?
Most of us thought yes. We thought that we tend to notice what is in our local area because we are used to it. We thought that tourists would notice more. If they came from more inner city, or run down areas they would probably be positive about the park: if they came from rural areas they might be less positive mad might notice any litter or graffiti more.
We will analyse our findings back at school and report upon them, evaluating our methods and making recommendations about the park.
