On Tuesday, year 5 went on a very exciting trip to Southbourne beach to continue their learning about coasts and their features.  Despite the weather, the children were full of enthusiasm and completed their activities with a smile – even with soggy paper…!

They explored how long shore drift occurs, created sand sculptures, asked the public their surveys and looked at human and physical features on the coast line.

The children were excellent ambassadors for St James’, being polite and respectful when approaching the public and the lifeguards (when everyone else had fled due to the weather) and walked sensibly to and from school.

What a great day!
