Erosion on coastlines
Over time, waves erode a notch at the base of a cliff in a process called undercutting. When this notch becomes too heavy it will break off and crash into the sea. Different parts of the rock face are eroded at high and low tide. If high winds meet a high tide, the erosion will be greater. Different coastal features such as caves, arches and stacks are all formed by erosion.
A visit to Poole Harbour
Barnaby Bear is at the harbour in Poole. This is one of the busiest harbours in the world and there are all sorts of boats including fishing boats, ferries and pleasure cruisers. The lifting bridge is needed to let the big boats into the harbour. Historically, boats have always been important in Poole. The buildings along the quay were once warehouses for spices and oils. After visiting the harbour, Barnaby plays on the beach and learns how to stay safe in the sun.
