This term in year 1 we will be investigating the question ‘Why do we like to be beside the seaside?’
We began our topic with a ‘train journey’ to our WOW room where we experienced a day at the seaside.
Drama activities included making sandcastles, sunbathing and paddling in the cool water. We are writing postcards about our visit and exploring the past seaside activities. Using ‘The Train Ride’ by June Crebbin, we have explored geographical places and features and we are looking at seaside weather and appropriate clothing.
We have a surprise visit planned from Punch and Judy to experience a puppet show from the past.
