This half term our topic is Seaside Holidays.
This half term we will be looking at seaside holidays past and present. The children will look at human and physical features of the seaside and how they have changed from Victorian times until the present day.
During Literacy the children will use photos of themselves at the seaside to create a descriptive piece of writing about their holiday called 'Every picture tells a story.' They will also write a postcard imagining that they are on a seaside holiday in the past, describing what they can see and hear, and what kinds of activities they can do. The children will create poetry about the seaside using Historic items as a stimulus e.g. penny lick, bathing suits etc.
During Maths the children will be doing Data Handling based on popular holiday destinations, they will collect the data and choose the best way to present their findings. They will also be solving problems involving money and measures.
As Geographers the children will be mapping out popular seaside destinations in the UK and abroad, drawing upon their own experiences. They will look at how the seaside compares to our own locality, including the human and physical features.
As Historians the children will be watching 'Magic Grandad' where they will be able to travel through time to see what holidays were like in the 1900's and 1950's, comparing them to now. They will look in particular at the entertainment in the past as well as how they would travel, the clothes they would wear, the land use and the attitudes of people in the past.
PE days for Class 8 are Mondays and Thursdays. Please make sure that children have a PE kit and appropriate shoes for outdoors activities.
In Year 2, children will be going to the woods as we would like to do this when it links with learning in class. We will always give you notice before hand and would love any helpers to join us.
We had a lovely time on our school trip to Silloth. Here are some photos of the day.
