Our Y7 students have been involved with their first geography field study. Students have visited The New Lawn, home of Forest Green Rovers, to learn about sustainability, a vegan diet and the reasons why FGR would like to build a new sustainable stadium near Stonehouse. Some lucky students were also able to cook vegan food which we all enjoyed sampling.  We were also fortunate to meet Christian Doidge and ask him a few questions.

Students then travelled to Eastington to understand the views of local councillors about plans for FGR’s new stadium.  Finally, students then completed questionnaires with members of the public in Stonehouse and Nailsworth to learn about the views of local residents.  In Geography lessons, students will now use all of this raw data to write reports about the different views relating to FGR’s proposed new stadium and reach their own justified conclusions.

On behalf of all our students, we would like to thank FGR, local councillors in Eastington and members of the public who have all made today’s field study a huge success.
