On a very sunny day last week Year 8 visited Overstrand and Cromer. We arrived at Overstrand to study the sea defences and to see the cliff fall. With a stiff northerly breeze and high tide the waves powered towards the coastline, giving the girls a real opportunity to see how the sea defences worked. They were captivated by the waves and the spray that occasionally crashed over the promenade.
After spending time drawing and writing about the sea defences and looking at the cliff where the slump had occurred, we drove to Cromer. Here they spent time in small groups collecting data on land use type and completing questionnaires.
After a light lunch (some succumbed to Mary Janes fish and chips) we walked along the cliff top, promenade and pier to collect more data on tourist facilities. Of course it wouldn’t have been right to leave the seaside without sampling some ice cream!
Everyone enjoyed themselves and also collected plenty of valuable data for their project. See more photos from the trip.
