To enhance the teaching and learning of the Seaside topic in Year 1 we enjoyed a trip to Bournemouth. The trip consisted of a guided tour around the Oceanarium Aquarium by marine experts and an interactive session that involved the children getting hands-on with artefacts including turtle shells and shark jaws. The staff at the Aquarium were impressed with the children’s behaviour during the tour and commented on how responsible and respectful they were. After lunch we strolled along the promenade observing beach huts, funicular lifts and the Bournemouth Pier. We finished our trip with a delicious ice-cream and a paddle in the sea. Here are some photographs of our trip.
