Summer Vehicle - Beside The Seaside

Seaside day crafts

During our vehicle, we will look at the way the seaside has changed in the last 100 years. We will be looking at weather and climate, considering how this impacts where people choose to go on holiday. We will consider how people would have travelled to their destination 100 years ago, compared to now. During DT we will be looking at puppets. Our aim at the end of the unit, is to produce a range of our own puppets, which can be used to put on a puppet show for Nursery! We hope to have our very own seaside day during the last week to celebrate all of our learning this term!


Mrs Jones will be posting pictures of our learning each week on this page, so check back to see what we have been up to in all of our lessons!

On Friday 24th June, we will be visiting the Black Country Living Museum. The children will be looking at how life has changed. This will be a wonderful link to our History topic "Changes in living memory."
