Year 6 - Walton-on-the-Naze Educational Centre Visit
We are writing to inform you about an exciting trip we have organised for Year 6 at the end of this half-term, in connection with our geography topic on the coasts. We have booked a trip to Walton-on-the-Naze which includes a visit to the educational centre on the clifftop. During the visit children will learn about the coastal defences, look at the difference between managed and unmanaged beaches and look at fossils found on the beach.
The coach will be departing school at 9.15am and leaving Walton at 2.30pm. As most of the day will take place outside, children are permitted to attend on the day of their trip in non-school uniform. It is important that the clothes they wear are both warm and comfortable. In addition to this, they are likely to get these wet along with their shoes. If they would like to bring a spare pair of shoes (preferably wellies) and socks then they are welcome to do so. Your child will also need a packed lunch and a drink on the day (no glass bottles).
We have had to split the trip over 2 days due to the venue’s small capacity and in order to ensure every child gets the most out of this trip. Below is the timetable for when each class is going. Tigers are being split across both days.

The cost per child is a voluntary contribution of £12.50, which covers coach travel and admission. This is a wonderful opportunity for the children to experience geography in their local area.
