Please look below to find some ideas about things you can do in the local area. I have added some links to websites where necessary.
Getting out and about in Norfolk
Did you know that the bones of a mammoth were discovered near to Cromer? Were you aware that the oldest known hominid (our ancestors) footprints outside of Africa were found in Happisburgh? Well, it is all true!
There is a really cool walk and discovery trail that you can do along the coast of North Norfolk that links in closely with our autumn term learning theme on the Stone Age. It is called ‘the Deep History Coast’.
You can also download ‘the Deep History Coast’ app on yours or an adults phone which allows you to use augmented reality, where you can see things from the past on your phone as if they are really there, and play fun games!
Exploration closer to home
Sadler’s Wood in North Walsham is the perfect place to get out and about to explore nature. The wood has a children’s play area and a brand new tree trail where trees are marked with their names. Can you find our class tree? Take a picture and send it to me if you’d like! Also, see how many other trees you can spot! If you are very quiet you may even see a Tawny owl or a deer.
50 things to do before you're 11¾
The National Trust has an activity list of things that you may want to do before you turn 11¾. This fun list has a range of ideas, some simple and others more complicated. Why not check it out before you try some of the other activities I have suggested? You can roll down a hill at Sadler’s Wood or skim stones on the beach while doing the Deep History Coast discovery trail. Take a look below!
