The group was led by three PGCE Geography students from Bishop Grosseteste University

Last week, children from Ruskington Chestnut Street School took part in a geography field trip to Lincoln, led by trainee teachers from Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU).

Three PGCE Geography students from the University spent a day preparing fieldwork for the Brayford Pool area of Lincoln, which was then taught to the primary school's Year 5 and Year 6 pupils.

Geography fieldwork is an essential part of studying the subject, allowing students to explore and investigate the world around them. The fieldwork conducted by Chestnut School pupils provided them with hands-on experience and the opportunity to explore a new and exciting environment, and learn more about their local area.

BGU's Dr Charles Rawding said: "Our three trainees did an exceptional job in preparing and delivering the activities. Their enthusiasm, creativity and expertise ensured that the pupils were fully engaged and able to get the most out of the experience.

"It's wonderful to see pupils engaging with Geography in such a meaningful way. Fieldwork allows students to see the real-world applications of what they are learning in the classroom, and we are thrilled to be a part of it."
