A trip to Malham Cove

Almost one hundred geography pupils in year 10 visited Malham in the Yorkshire Dales National Park last week to undertake some field work as part of their GCSE.
In the morning, pupils were tasked with investigating the evidence of and impacts of tourism and collected several pieces of primary data including questionnaires, environment quality surveys and field sketches in the village and at Malham Cove.
The trip supported learning from the classroom on National Parks, the formation of limestone and karst scenery and changing cities. The follow up work in the classroom including constructing graphs, formulating conclusions and writing evaluations will be used to answer GCSE questions in mock exams and Summer 2025 for the pupils.
In the afternoon, there was an interesting tour of White Scar Caves in Ingleton to view limestone formations in Europe’s largest showcave.
Pupils were engaged seeing a range of underground limestone features like waterfalls, stalactites, stalagmites and listen to the story of their amazing discovery 99 years ago.
