Year 2 Visit Chalkwell Beach 

Year 2 Visit Chalkwell Beach 


Year 2 went on a trip to Chalkwell Beach. It was a beautiful sunny day and we were very excited.

We travelled by tube to Barking and boarded the C2C to Chalkwell.  We saw lots of interesting things along the way such as, cows, horses and wind turbines. After about 40 minutes we arrived at Chalkwell  Beach. 

We got off the train we smelt the sea and fresh air. Our teachers explained the rules and we were then able to play in the sand and pebbles. We had a competition to see who could build the biggest sandcastle. The sand was really dry and didn't stick together so we added some water to make it stick. We also collected seaweed, shells, leaves and rocks for our Andy Goldsworthy art topic. 

At lunch time we had a picnic. We ate a sandwich, some crisps and a piece of fruit. Once, we had all had lunch we are again able to play on the beach and we saw the tide coming in. After that, we went and brought a Mr Whippy ice cream from the little shop and it was yummy.  We had to eat it quickly so that it wouldn’t melt. 

Finally, it was time for us to go home. We all said bye to the beach and we walked back to Chalkwell Station.   

We are sure that if you went to Chalkwell Beach you would also have a wonderful day!
