Re: GCSE Geography Taster Trip

 

Dear Parent/Carer

 

The Geography department is delighted to be able to invite prospective GCSE candidates to experience their first GCSE geography trip to Cadbury Word “Geography of Chocolate”.  This is an enrichment trip taking place on the Thursday 28th February 2013, leaving at 9.00am returning approx 5.00pm students will need to book the 5.45pm late bus the trip is aimed at those students who are considering taking geography GCSE to build up their geographical skills and knowledge.

 

Students will take the journey through Cadbury World, where chocolate comes to life, and learn about the importance of the rainforest environment for the production of cocoa beans; which is the prime ingredient of chocolate. Students will have the fantastic opportunity to discover how the socioeconomic conditions of countries that produce cocoa beans can impact consumer decisions and options here in the UK

 

Students will benefit from the day, by experiencing several aspects of geography that are covered in the GCSE OCRa Syllabus, for the module Contemporary Themes.

 

If you are thinking about attending this tasty “Geography of Chocolate” trip, act fast to avoid disappointment as there are only 40 places available on the coach.  The trip will cost £15.15 per student; payment for the trip will need to be paid by the 11th of February 2013 to student reception by cash/wisepay/cheque (made payable to Corby Business Academy). (Students will require a packed lunch those on FSM will be provided from school.

 

Students will be required to wear academy uniform. There is a small gift shop at Cadbury world, if students want to bring a small amount of money to spend.

 

Yours faithfully

 

 

Miss Maxine Hopewell

Humanities Tutor
