Rose Hill pupils geography trip to Iceland!

On Monday 22nd of October, 10 year 6’s, Miss Roberts and Mrs Morgan went on a trip to Iceland.

We were there for four days and during that time we visited many places.

Some of the first things we did was to visit a magnificent church which was made of quartz columns.

We also got to visit the Perlan. The Perlan is a a large building with a dome on the top so you can see across Reykjavik. This building used to be used as a large water tank. We also got to visit the black beach where the sand is black and the waves are ginormous.

The next day we visited a waterfall called Seljalandsfoss. At Seljalandsfoss we got to walk behind it and saw it from another point of view and it was super pretty. Another great day was when we visited the hot spring called the Secret Lagoon. We all got to swim in the lagoon and it was really warm like being in a bath! We also got to see the geysers which smelt of sulphur which smells like rotten egg!

We also went to Skogafoss where we did a competition where we had to guess how many stairs there were to the top. It turns out there are 370 and we walked them all!

We saw another waterfall called Gullfoss where we learnt how the water has eroded away the rock.

One of my favourite sites that we visited was the Glacier. A Glacier is a really big block of ice that keeps moving as the ice melts. 20 years ago the glacier would have been bigger than it is today.

Iceland grows 2cm every year because of volcanic movement.

A funny fact I learnt was that Icelandic people believe in elves. They have to ask someone who can talk to elves to ask them if they can build a road and whether they have to go round a specific rock!!

Takk (thank you in Icelandic) to Mrs Morgan and Miss Roberts for organising such a fun trip!

Year 6 Geography trip to the River Cuckmere and Seven Sisters Country Park.

12 March 2020

Whilst the heavy rain did make the trip via Alfriston village a little tricky it also served to highlight the spectacular meanders and creeks of the River Cuckmere’s floodplain in the Spring sunshine and allow the ‘New Cut’ to be in full spate and speed along to the sea at low tide. As it did so the fast-flowing water actively undercut and eroded the shingle beach causing mini land or ‘shingle’ slides before our very eyes.
