Places we might take our partners because they are all near to the sea.
This is Donna Nook. Every year we go to see the seal pups. These are the river terrace houses in Spalding We live close to the sea but the nearest seaside places are Skegness and Hunstanton. This is a picture of the beach and cliffs in Hunstanton. It is about 1 hour by car from Spalding. Skegness is a place where people go on holiday. This is Sandringham which is the Queens summer residence.
Spalding is a market town with a population of 30,000 on the River Welland in the South Holland district of Lincolnshire, England Spalding is well-known for its annual Flower Parade which attracts many regular visitors from all over the world. Since 2002 it has also held an annual The Welland right through the middle of Spalding. The South Holland Centre is in the middle of Spalding. Ascoughfee Hall in Spalding. There is also Ascoughfee Park where you can play tennis putting and bowls.
We worked with Mr Taylor to produce a map of where we are and where the other schools are. Mrs Mitchie taught us all some Spanish words like “Hola” she told us not to be scared to say them to our visitors. With Mrs Huseyin we made a logo for the project. Mr Taylor will take our logo when he has a meeting with the other teachers from Spain, Turkey and Poland.
<ul><li>At first, we were asked to find a picture which we thought best represented Spain, Poland, Turkey and the United Kingdom. </li></ul><ul><li>We then went onto the internet to find our pictures. </li></ul>
I looked for a picture about the UK coastline and found a seal.
<ul><li>Using the picture from the internet, we drew our own pictures and coloured them in with pencils. </li></ul>
I am drawing the boat. Lodz means boat in Polish.
<ul><li>We used tracing paper to draw around our pictures to produce a shape. </li></ul>
I carefully drew the shape onto the tracing paper.
<ul><li>We cut out the shapes and arranged them into the logo. </li></ul><ul><li>Our teacher then photocopied this on to plain paper so that we could colour it. </li></ul>
This is The Priory School logo for our Comenius Project.
<ul><li>Britain is an Island surrounded by sea! </li></ul>Spalding is here!!!!
The English Channel is a very important waterway. It is between England and Europe. The distance between Dover and Calais is about 22 Miles. People swim the English Channel and Mr Allen our PE teacher has swum the English Channel three times.
These are the cliffs at Hunstanton which are very famous. When the tide comes in sometimes rocks start to fall down the cliffs. Lots of people kite surf in Hunstanton. It is a good place to learn to windsurf as well. The lighthouse in Hunstanton.
Cromer is a typical English seaside town. It still has a pier and people like to visit the pier to go to the Theatre, but also to walk along the pier. Many people like to fish or try to catch crabs on Cromer pier. People stand on the pier and try to catch crabs with a line and bait. These fishing boats are kept at Cromer beach. The fishermen still earn their living by fishing for Cromer crabs. At night the pier is lit up. You can go to the theatre at the end of the pier.
Holkham Beach where people go to walk and ride horses. Wells Next the Sea is a traditional fishing village that is also popular for people on holiday. Wells is famous for its colourful beach huts.
Burnham Overy Staith is a little known fishing village in North Norfolk. There is a lake formed by an island and you can walk out to it along a path or get a ferry down the river. In some places on the North Norfolk Coast the land is falling into the sea. Blakeney Quay today Old Blakeney Harbour There are lots of places on the North Norfolk coast where you can watch the seals.
The Wash shows as a large indentation in the coastline of the map of Eastern England , separating the curved coast of East Anglia from Lincolnshire . It is formed by a large bay with three roughly straight sides meeting at right angles, each about 15 miles (25 km) in length. The eastern coast of the Wash is entirely within Norfolk , and extends from Hunstanton in the north to the mouth of the River Great Ouse at King's Lynn in the south. The opposing coast, which is roughly parallel to the east coast, runs from Gibraltar Point to the mouth of the River Welland , all within Lincolnshire. The southern coast runs roughly northwest-southeast, connects these two river mouths and is punctuated by the mouth of a third river, the River Nene . Inland from the Wash the land is flat, low-lying and often marshy: these are the Fens of Lincolnshire , Cambridgeshire and Norfolk . Owing to deposits of sediment and land reclamation , the coastline of the Wash has altered markedly within historical times; several towns once on the coast of the Wash (notably King's Lynn) are now some distance inland. Much of the Wash itself is very shallow, with several large sandbanks—such as Breast Sand, Bulldog Sand, Roger Sand and Old South Sand—exposed at low tide, especially along its south coast. For this reason, navigation in the Wash can be hazardous for boats. A lightship marks the entrance to the Lynn Channel , the one safe channel from the North Sea to the Wash's south coast. In Spalding we are very close to North Sea but even closer to the Wash. There are lots of different animals particularly sea birds that can be seen in the Wash. We will be doing more work about creatures of The Sea near us next term!
