St Margaret’s Beach
The beautiful seaside village of Saint Margaret’s, set in the heart of the White Cliffs Country, was the destination for our first Year 4 trip. The bay itself offered an inspiring backdrop to a spectacular countryside and coastline, which allowed us to learn about many of the bay’s features and also have a bit of fun too.
Both classes spent time walking along the bay where we had the opportunity to look at, talk about and study coastal features including: beach huts, a WW2 pillar box, cliff caves, a shingle coastline and houses located on the clifftops.
After lunch, we broke off into teams and spent 15 minutes building the tallest towers we could out of stones. Congratulations to the three teams that won!
Before the rain came down, we managed to walk back along the coastline and take a look at the wooden boat hut that was made by local college students in 1999 that was incredibly fascinating!
The children and adults all had a great time and can’t wait to go back again.
