Oh we do like to be beside the seaside!

Oh we do like to be beside the seaside!

Years 1 and 6 arrived at school last Tuesday ready and raring for a day at the seaside. Armed with buckets, spades and bats and balls, the children eagerly clambered onto the bus, excited for their last school trip of the year. Arriving at West Wittering beach, the children listened carefully to a safety talk from the beach lifeguards, learning about the different flags on the shore and their meanings. They then spent the day on the beach, building sandcastles and playing football, paddling in the water and working together to protect their castles from the incoming tide. Year 1 reflected on whether Victorian children would have spent their days at the seaside in the same way, using what they had learnt in their history lessons to help them draw comparisons. It was a wonderful day for all involved and I know year 1 feel very lucky to have spent their day with year 6 who will be leaving us soon, we wish them all the best for their next adventures.
