Splish, Splash, Splosh!
Year 2 pupils have been fully immersed within a topic on The Seaside this term. They have enjoyed listening to stories from the Lighthouse Keeper series, and have used a storyboard to write their own version of one of the books.
Using watercolors, they have painted some beautiful pictures of lighthouses, and beach huts too, which are on display for everyone to admire.
Having looked at Seaside holidays from the past the children have designed and constructed their own “bathing machines” in Design Technology. Cleverly assembling a chassis first, they have then used cuboid and triangular nets to build the body and roof of the bathing machine. Some finishing touches to their wonderful designs and these will soon be ready to show off!
During the topic, the Year 2s had a special visitor from the past come to join them for a lesson where they were able to ask appropriate questions to find out what life was like at the seaside 100 years ago. We also got to find out what children would wear at the beach – as modelled here by Ruby!
