Well planned, safely run, quality fieldwork can benefit students’ learning and personal development. Positive fieldwork experiences may also encourage students to continue their geographical education at Key Stage 4 and beyond.

Quick and easy fieldwork ideas

Adding a few fun activities to your current fieldwork programme can engage your students in geographical learning - and make your fieldwork exciting and relevant. Find some new ideas and hear details of fieldwork that has worked for other teachers.

Qualitative fieldwork

Traditionally school fieldwork has often been skewed towards a quantitative approach, that is one which relies heavily on numerical data evidence to draw conclusions and to test hypotheses. Qualitative approaches represent a way to achieve a different kind of understanding, one that appeals to students who find satisfaction in the recognition of what is going on at a more personal level.

Cross-curricular fieldwork

This fieldwork resource introduces you to a humanities cross curricular investigation where you can examine your local area from a range of different scales and perspectives.

Inclusive fieldwork

The ideas provided in this inclusive resource can be used and adapted within main stream or special needs schools. They can also be used as differentiated activities for special needs students within a mixed-ability class.
