Year 3 Visit Cromer

On Friday 27th September 2013, Year 3 travelled to a beautifully sunny Cromer as part of our seaside topic.

As soon as we arrived, we set off for the Henry Blogg Museum.

We were greeted by a volunteer from the RNLI who told us the fascinating story of the Sepoy shipwreck in 1933, which made Henry Blogg one of the most recognised coxswains of his time.

We were then given a tour of the Henry Blogg Museum where the children enjoyed dressing up in the life jackets and helmets used by members of the RNLI lifeboat crew, sending SOS messages and sending messages using the International Flag Code.

After lunch, groups took it in turns to walk along the pier to the lifeboat station. The children were amazed to learn that all of the lifeboat crew are volunteers and that the RNLI depends on donations from the public in order to send the lifeboat out to rescue people in danger at sea.

Those children not visiting the Lifeboat Station spent time on the beach, modelling sand sculptures and building cairns. They also had an opportunity to visit the RNLI gift shop to spend their pocket money to help raise money for this worthy cause and to remind them of the fantastic day they had enjoyed in Cromer.

We hope you enjoy the photographs of our visit.
