Walton-on-the-Naze

As part of Year 6’s Geography work on ‘coasts’ they visited the seaside! They saw how Walton-on-the-Naze has clear evidence of erosion and examples of other geographical features that we have studied this term.

Such a lovely day out! smiley

Let's do the 'Swash and Backwash' dance!

Year 6 have been learning about longshore drift and how the swash and backwash of the waves moves sediment along the beach . When waves approach the coastline at an angle the sediment is carried up the beach (swash) at the same angle; it then moves back down (backwash) at right angles.

Year 1 Explorers and Geographers

Year 1 have been learning how to read a map. We used a map to follow a route to Stanstead Abbotts. We looked at the important features on the map and found them along our route.

We have set up a link with Bingham Academy, a school in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.  This school has approximately 300 students aged from 4-18 years, and includes children from over 30 different nationalities.  We were quite surprised to find out that Ethiopia is a diverse country in terms of lifestyle, wealth and terrain.  We found out that many of the children at Bingham Academy have similar interests to children in England; sport, playing on computer games and spending time outside with friends.  We hope to use Skype and email to be able to continue to find out more about life in Ethiopia and get to know more about individual children at Bingham Academy.
