Aylmerton: Day 3

Today we continued our study of coastal erosion by visiting Happisburgh where the children could see first-hand how the cliffs had disappeared. We contrasted this with Sea Palling, where millions had been spent on sea defences to protect the Norfolk Broads.

Following lunch, we took the coach to Cromer, where we visited the museum to learn more about local fossil finds such as mammoths and brown bears, along with looking how local families lived over 100 years ago in cottages, comparing their lives to modern living. The children then visited the museum shop where they spent most of their money on all sorts of items.

Whilst in Cromer, we took the opportunity to have an ice cream and then we completed a navigation task around the town.

Today was a special day for 2 of our children as they both had their birthday. We celebrated this at tea time with cake and their parents had sent a present for them to open.

We are hoping for good weather tomorrow – as we will be going out in a boat in search of seals!
