As part of their geography topic on Coasts, Swans class visited Walton on the Naze. They had a visit to the Naze tower where Michelle our tour guide explained how the building was originally a lighthouse and an important building during World War 2. She explained about coastal erosion around the area and how there is some structures in place to slow down erosion particularly near the tower.
We then went onto the beach to look at the coastal erosion and some of the defences that are in place; the children also got to do some fossil hunting. We were all trying to find sharks teeth! After our lunch we took a walk to look at some World War 2 pill boxes and Nissen hunts. A great trip all round.
