Year 6 Geography trip to West Wittering beach

Year 6 were taken on a Geography trip to West Wittering beach.  They were taken by boat around the distal end of East Head spit to develop an appreciation of the wildlife and scenery, which constitute this area of conservation. The boys visited their ‘outdoor geographical classroom’ to study the formation of the spit, salt marsh and sand dunes.  They were also able to see first-hand how coastal management has protected East Head from coastal erosion. The sun shone and packed lunches were eaten overlooking spectacular coastal scenery.  It was a thoroughly enjoyable and productive day at the beach!
