As Ex-Hurricane Ophelia crosses Ireland we are covered in a strange brownish thick layer of cloud. The sky is distinctly Turneresque as clouds of dark orange Saharan sand almost totally obliterate the sun ... it is 3:30 pm and all of the lights are on!

Last Exeat Year 8 pupils were set the task of looking around them to find examples of Weathering and take a selfie or a photograph of it with them in it. Here are some of their photos ...
Alex's Biological Weathering in Ashurst Wood
Elizabeth's Biological Weathering on her driveway
Hattie's Chemical Weathering on her steps
Ignacio found Biological Weathering in Hyde Park
Maja found some limestone at home that had been Chemically weathered
Theo found some possible Freeze-Thaw action at home.
No-one found any evidence of onion-Skin Weathering (exfoliation). Why do you think that this was harder to find?
