The geography department at Forfar Academy held its annual Standard Grade field trip to Dundee on Wednesday, March 16.

Ninety S4 pupils carried out fieldwork based around the topics of settlement and industry. T

hey practised their enquiry skills techniques which form a considerable part of their final exam in May. Pupils took responsibility for their own work and learning in the completion of various tasks, e.g. environmental surveys and land use transects in several parts of the city in order to compare areas of old and new housing and industry.

The variety of work involved with these tasks tested the pupils’ literacy and numeracy skills, along with their artistic talents!
