Year 5 & 6 visit Great Yarmouth

Last month our Year 5 and Year 6 pupils went to Great Yarmouth to continue their studies on the coast. Here are 3 pupil reports of the day.

“On Wednesday 2nd October, Years 5 and 6 travelled to Great Yarmouth to continue our studies on the coast, to have fun and learn about the town. We did a traffic survey where we learned there were more cars than any other vehicles. We then did a land use survey and we found out that most of the buildings are for restaurants, bars and cafes. People like to eat in Great Yarmouth! We finished the day by sitting on the beach and drawing Great Yarmouth from north, south, east and west and then we had an ice cream.”

“On Wednesday the 2nd of October, Years 5 and 6 went to Great Yarmouth. We monitored the traffic using tallies. We had to concentrate as the traffic was a little bit busy; afterwards we did a land use survey which was interesting. We had lunch afterwards then we did four field sketches, one to the north, one to the east, one to the south and so on. We then went to a shop and bought ice creams. After that we returned to school.”

“On the 3rd October Year 5 and 6 went on a trip to Great Yarmouth to do some fieldwork.
When we got there we were split into three groups and then we set off. I was in Mrs Meyer’s group. We did a big traffic survey which was fun but we did not see much traffic because we were on a very quiet road. We did a field sketch of a building along our road.We then did a land use survey and wrote down all the buildings we went passed. We saw a hotel called Faulty Towers! We were ready for lunch as we had been working hard. After lunch we did more field sketches from the prom. We ended the day with an ice-cream. I loved the day.
