On Friday 7th October, the Year 3 pupils travelled to Cromer in Norfolk as part of their topic ‘At the Seaside’.
When we arrived, we enjoyed listening to the fascinating story of the Sepoy shipwreck. We were then given a tour of the Henry Blogg Museum where the children were able to try on life jackets and helmets, used by members of the lifeboat crew. Some of them were rather big!
The brisk sea air made all of us extremely hungry and the café, situated right on the seafront, was the perfect setting for us to eat our well deserved lunch. There was a choice of fish and chips, sausage and chips or chicken nuggets. It was delicious! There was just enough time to eat an ice-cream on the sea front before visiting the shop.
Later in the day, we walked carefully along the pier to the RNLI lifeboat station. The children were able to ask questions about the lifeboat and we were lucky enough to see the emergency door opening which lead right out into the sea.
Tired after such an exciting day, we travelled the two hour journey back to school. It really was an excellent trip.
We hope you enjoy the photographs of our visit.
