Geography: Successful Regeneration of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne
13 February 2020 | Darren Smith
Last week, the year 10 GCSE geographers spent a day in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne collecting data for the fieldwork element of their course and also visiting some key locations in the city which we have been studying in lessons. Students were undertaking environmental quality surveys, questionnaires and pedestrian counts in and around the quayside area to try and establish if the regeneration which has taken place there has been successful or not. After a lunch break in the city centre, we then visited China Town, Science City, Jesmond and Byker to get a real feel for the character of the city.
We were lucky to have fine and dry weather on both days we were out which was much appreciated by students and staff alike!
