What a busy term it has been already!

Early in September, we were invited to attend the Abbeygate Concert Band’s performance at Great Totham Village hall. Some of the instruments were exceedingly loud! We were surprised by how many of the songs we knew.

At the start of November, we visited Northey Island – well almost! Unfortunately, high tide was at 1:16 p.m. which meant the causeway leading to Northey Island would not be safe to cross as we didn’t want to be stranded. At first we didn’t believe Miss Campling, as the water level was not near the top of the causeway, but within approximately 40 minutes the tide had breached it. We were amazed by how quickly the tide came in.

During our trip, we completed a sketch map of the area and learnt how the tide and the causeway were significant factors in the Battle of Maldon. Before we came back to school, we visited the statue of Brythnoth at the bottom of the Prom.
