History Off the Page Seaside History Day

Year One children really enjoyed their visit from History off the Page in March. They had the chance to make their own train ticket, create a postcard, colour a flag and make some coin rubbings from old Victorian coins. They also made their own souvenirs, such as a mug, shell boxes, cork boats and pop up Punch and Judy puppets. We looked at old cameras and clothes from seaside holidays in the past.


In the afternoon, each class ran their own 'Seaside Day' - where they could serve friends in the tea room, explain how to play the penny games and sell them souvenirs. The children in the other class spent their 12p very wisely on these activities before they swapped places and had the chance to take on the other role. 


The session finished with a fabulous Punch and Judy show, which the children thought was hilarious! 


Thank you very much to FOT who subsidised this experience by kindly giving the year group 'Hooks and Highlights' money to spend on activities such as this. 

Performance Poetry

Class 1B have been learning poems in class this week, using actions that we thought of ourselves to help us remember each line. The children have done a fabulous job and were really confident in their performance! We hope that you enjoy it!
