Fieldwork at Ramla Bay


On the 12th of May 2009, together with the other Form 3 Geography Option students we had fieldwork at Ramla. This fieldwork session was a follow up to the lessons about coasts and rocks in the Maltese Islands we had in class.

1We arrived at Ramla Bay at about 9am and the bay was quiet and peaceful. The weather was fine with a light breeze and the sun was already high up in the cloudless sky.

Our teacher introduced the area with its natural landscape. We started off with the erosional and depositional landforms found at Ramla. These included headlands, bay, boulders, talus slope and sand dunes. All these features make Ramla a unique attraction for locals and tourists alike. Our teacher gave us some handouts with information and questions which we had to answer on-site. We worked in groups and had to take photos of the features observed. The threats Ramla Bay is facing and how this bay can be conserved were also discussed.

During this fieldwork session we applied the knowledge learned in class. We hope we will have other similar opportunities in the next scholastic year so that we can learn and have fun at the same time!!!
