Single Day Trips
Attenborough and Beeston
The half-day visit to Beeston and Attenborough provides an opportunity to study two related apscts of the River Trent. First, how people have exploited the river as a resource and second, the risks the river poses to local communities in the form of flooding. Adopting a problem-based learning approach, students work in small groups to collect a range of field evidence tat allows them to answer questions relating to three key themes: i). past and current uses of the river; ii). the nature and impacts of flooding; and iii). approaches taken to manage flooding between Beeston and Attenborough.
