As part of our Coastal study focus in Year 6 Geography, we went on a trip to Gibraltar Point Nature Reserve. We began by studying maps of the reserve, looking at how it has altered over several hundred years. We then went out to discover the salt marshes, different habitats and how the landscape has changed. Once on the beach, we took part in a scavenger hunt, collecting many shells and different types of seaweed and then forming our own sand dunes. Finally, we looked at how erosion and deposition has altered the course of the River Steeping. A fascinating day, full of lots of hands on learning and experiences. We will now explore this further back in the classroom.
