Year 11 geography students completed their urban fieldwork investigation in our beautiful city of Manchester. They completed a building survey exploring the types of buildings in the city’s central business district. They explored the well known areas of Deansgate, Castlefield, Peter Street, Canal Street, Portland Street and Market Street, before the most dramatic down pour, in typical ‘Manchester’ fashion!
The students particularly enjoyed the Piccadilly Garden water fountains and a shopping trip round the Arndale Centre, not to mention the endless food outlets and market stalls, along the way. They encountered many decorative, super-sized bee sculptures throughout the city which has been part of the ‘Bee in the City Art Trail’, which brightened up the grey, drizzly, wet Manchester day.
On return to school, the students will be studying the history of the city and will investigate how it has changed and whether the central business district today has been built on the original site. It has been an interesting investigation so far!
